The Martins West ballroom was packed for Network 2000's 20th annual "Women of Excellence" luncheon. The featured speaker this year was Academy-Award winning actor Geena Davis, who spoke about her Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media - why she founded the organization and what its research has revealed about gender representation and stereotypes in the media. Davis also mingled with some of the guests at a pre-luncheon VIP reception.
