Louisville Breakout Sessions

Breakout Sessions

Participants will attend a variety of interactive breakout sessions. These breakouts will be delivered by various local women that represent a variety of careers and personal choices. These women are experts on issues that high school girls are currently facing. The sessions will teach important skills needed to be successful in the workforce and ways to develop their leadership potential.

Social Media

What do those selfies say about you? To post or not to post? Is there a chance you’re being too social on social media? Get answers and advice to some common questions and concerns on the best use of social media and learn about hidden risks that could potentially harm you or haunt you later.

College Panel

A panel of college admissions professionals will share their expertise to help you on your journey from high school to college.

Career Panel, Including STEM

The percentage of women in STEM related careers is lower compared to men in the same fields. Choosing a career in STEM does not mean you have to sit behind a desk solving equations all day. Come hear from a panel of successful women with very different backgrounds tell of their career journey and get insight into the possibilities of careers in STEM related fields.

Allee Williams


Current UK senior majoring in Inter-Strategic Communications, Allee Williams, will bravely share her personal trials, tribulations and successes as she navigated her way through the many pitfalls of high school. After over coming an eating disorder triggered by low self-esteem and the pressure to fit in, Allee begun to realize that was not the life she wanted to lead and had lost herself in the process. Allee now speaks to high school girls encouraging them not to give up on themselves and the importance of self acceptance.

More About Allee Williams

My name is Alexandra Lee Williams, but I go by Allee. I am a sebior at the University of Kentucky studying Inter-Strategic Communications. I am a member of Alpha Delta Pi. I am also on the committee for DanceBlue, a 24-hour dance marathon that benefits the children’s oncology clinic at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital and the university’s Relay for Life walk-a-ton. My dad was in the military, so I moved around a lot growing up, but I call Elizabethtown, KY my home. I love chips and guacamole almost as much as I love making others laugh. In my 21 years, I have made more mistakes than I could count – each of which have led me to Young Women LEAD, and ultimately, to you.
