Visionary Women to Spotlight Vice Mayor Bosse on April 23

Beverly Hills Vice Mayor Lili Bosse will be featured in Visionary Women’s “Women in Power Member Spotlight” on April 23 at 4 p.m. The Zoom presentation, in conversation with artist-activist Piera Klein, will delve into the personal history, leadership philosophy and vision of one of the most effective leaders in the history of the city. 

“I’m looking forward to having an open-hearted conversation with the Honorable Lili Bosse about her journey into civic leadership, what inspires her, and the power of sisterhood and community,” Klein told the Courier. 

The only child of Holocaust survivors, Bosse grew up on South Maple Drive and attended Beverly Vista, Beverly Hills High School and the University of Southern California. 

In addition to serving two terms as mayor, Bosse’s tenure on the Beverly Hills City Council has resulted in a number of key initiatives that have enhanced life for residents. Some of her most notable projects include BH Healthy City; Walk with the Mayor; BOLD (Beverly Hills Open Later Days); Roxbury Park Community Center Reconstruction Project; the Historic Preservation ordinance; establishment of the Cultural Heritage Commission; restoration of Beverly Gardens Park and the first dog park in Beverly Hills.

In addition to her role as a public official and philanthropist, Bosse is also an activist. She is the co-founder of Visionary Women, and a member of Women Moving Millions. She was also selected for the prestigious Vital Voices Global Partnership Engage 20-21 Fellowship, comprised of an elite group of women political leaders who are making and influencing policy across the globe. (See the Courier’s March 26 issue, “Councilmember Bosse Taking Part in Vital Voices Fellowship.”)

Bosse has received numerous awards including the “Visionary Award” – the Israeli American Civic Action Network, the Fred Hayman Visionary Award, “Democrat of the Year Award 2014,” “Hall of Fame Award 2015” – Beverly Hills High School Alumni, “Spirit of Philanthropy Award” – Beverly Hills Education Foundation, “Women of Achievement Award”- Sheba Medical Center, “Edgar F. Magnin Community Service Award” – Hillcrest Country Club, “Ten People Who Made A Difference in Beverly Hills” and the “Gerda Spiegler, Member of the Year Award” – West Hollywood Club, Beverly Hills Club, to name a few.

“I am bursting with excitement to be part of this event. I am inspired by trailblazing women who empower one another to make a difference in the lives of others as they lift each other up in sisterhood with a fierce sense of community and a passion for positive change,” Bosse told the Courier.
