Following the workshop, we will honor the contributions of NDWN's 2017 Woman of the Year, Kathy Hogan.
Kathy has been a tireless advocate for women and families in North Dakota for decades. Human services has been her path and passion, serving as the longtime director of Cass County Social Services until 2008. In 2009, she joined the ND State Legislature where she has advocated for policies that treat people with the dignity and compassion they deserve, particularly in the area of Behavioral Healthcare. Karla Rose Hanson in her nomination of Kathy said, “Kathy’s astute understanding of public and private health systems, her sensible approach to solutions, and her steady leadership are indispensable. Kathy is both genial and driven; she is both visionary and organized; and she is selfless and tireless. North Dakota families are lucky to have her as a champion on this issue.”
Kathy is also dedicated to seeing more women take the leap to public office. As a mentor and cheerleader, she provides guidance and wisdom, spending much time encouraging other women to consider serving their communities as public officials.
We are honored to have Kathy as our 2017 Woman of the Year, Congrats, Kathy!
