The California Women’s Festival will take place Sunday — International Women’s Day — at UCSB’s Corwin Pavilion. Plenary sessions and seminars featuring multidisciplinary authors, forward thinkers and experts will be offered, as well as a business expo filled with quality organizations dedicated sustainability and betterment.

Women from across the country will gather, share resources and provide inspiration, and start personal action plans for improving their lives and communities and ultimately our world.

Louise Wannier, CEO of myShape, an e-tail clothing store created just for women, and Promerica Bank founder Maria Contreras Sweet are keynote speakers for the 2009 festival. Deborah Hutchison, creator of Gutsy Gals Inspire Me, will lead a panel discussion with national “Gutsy Gals” and talk about accomplished contemporary and historical women.

Added speakers include Adele Scheele, a career strategist and author of the international best seller Skills for Success who has appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America and CNBC; and Cindy Brown, a relationship and marriage coach and author of The Cinderella System: 7 Steps to Attracting the Man & Relationship of Your Dreams.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
