Visit http://wic.org Women's International Center Founder Gloria Lane: An Inspiring Legacy. Since October, 1982, Women's International Center, has demanded excellence of itself, and since 1983 has publicly honored excellence in others. On October 6, 1982, at her fiftieth birthday celebration, Gloria Lane, received a telephone call from her physician. He told her she was 'officially' diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. With destiny staring her in the face on that fateful night, Gloria made a critical decision. She could give in to her illness, or she could make it work for her. Obviously, she chose vision over the victim mentality. On that day, Women's International Center was founded. The motto of the concept was and is "Education Through Communication". The mission remains steadfast, "Acknowledging, Honoring, Encouraging and Educating Women". Contacting her already established network of contacts (Gloria was a college teacher and an often booked speaker on the San Diego women's organization meetings circuit, and had been an entertainment agent and publisher), she shared the power of her dream, and many rapidly became active advocates.
