Young Women’s Leadership & Empowerment Conference

November 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Young Women Leading brings you the Young Women’s Leadership and Empowerment Conference- “Starting the Conversation”

Audience: Young Teen Girls (Young Women) in Middle-School and High-School and Parents of Young Teen Girls

Today’s young women are faced with daily social pressures to perform and appease. Although social tides are changing and improving, cultural habits still impress upon young women to over-perform, under-receive, and remain gracious, accepting, and silent. These are topics that must be addressed if we hope to improve the lives of young women in the future.

Young Women Leading is taking this challenge to Empower Future Women Leaders. Through the Young Women’s Leadership and Empowerment Conference we hope to Start the Conversation to move us in the right direction, as we empower young women to take control of their lives and their future!
