Davis businesswoman Janice Labadie, a resident of Newcastle, is serving a two-year term as Sierra Nevada Region governor of Soroptimist International, a global volunteer organization is for business and professional women.

As region governor, Labadie is serving as the top administrative officer for Soroptimist clubs in her geographical territory, which covers much of Northern California and all of Nevada. Together, Labadie and her clubs will work to effect social change and to increase the collective impact they have on local women and girls.

Labadie is a member of Soroptimist International of Davis, one of 3,100 Soroptimist clubs that improve the lives of women and girls through volunteer projects in the community. A member since 1992, she has held several leadership positions, including district director, governor-elect, club president and club vice president.

Labadie is the co-owner of Strelitzia Flower Company in Davis with her husband Dean. She attended American River College in Sacramento, where she received an associate’s degree in environmental horticulture.

Previous to her election as governor, she has been active in the Davis community, garnering several awards for her efforts, including Yolo County Women’s History Month Award, Yolo County Marine Corps League Award and Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center Award. She shared the C.A. Covell Award (Citizen of the Year) with Dean for their contributions to the Davis community.

Strelitzia also has been honored as a Business Advancing the Status of Women by Soroptimist International of Davis.

Labadie is passionate about furthering the needs of women and children and has worked through Soroptimist to put an end to human and sex trafficking.

Headquartered in Philadelphia, Soroptimist’s major program, the Women’s Opportunity Award, provides cash grants for women seeking to improve their lives with the help of additional education and training. Each year, about $1.5 million is disbursed to deserving women through this award-winning program.

A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Soroptimist relies on charitable donations to fund its programs. There are two clubs in Davis. For more information, visit Soroptimist.org, www.sidavis.org or www.soroptimistofgreaterdavis.org.
