Survivors’ Truths at the Women of the World Awards, Lakers Foundation Event


Lakers forward Metta World Peace with Survivors' Truths Executive Director Dove Pressnall and Meghana Frenchman, the United Nations Association, Pasadena secretary.


Much of Survivors’ Truths’ work focuses on participatory and social media. However, we also strive to be active in the local non-profit community. We are always looking to spread our message while reaching out to those doing incredible work in Los Angeles and beyond.

We  made good on that mission this past Sunday.

Survivors’ Truths attended the 5th annual Women of the World Awards on March 10. The event, hosted by 50/50 Leadership and the United Nations Association's Pasadena/Foothills Chapter, honored local women who are making an impact in other parts of the world. Our executive director, Dove Pressnall, was an honoree at last year’s award luncheon. This time around, she discussed the relationship between women in leadership positions and women’s advocacy as a speaker at the event.

Survivors’ Truths could also be spotted at the 2013 Lakers Casino Night, an event benefiting the Lakers Youth Foundation. The foundation assists nonprofit community organizations and emphasizes the use of sports to promote education, teamwork and self-esteem.

In keeping with the theme of Women’s History Month, we want to know: Do you think there is a relationship between women in leadership positions and gender equality? If so, how can women in leadership positions change perceptions about leadership and gender?
