What Is Young Women LEAD?
Young Women LEAD is an all day leadership conference for high school girls focusing on Leadership, Education and Development. The purpose of the conference is to empower high school girls to embrace their strengths and to reach their full potential. The all day session features nationally recognized women who share their own insights on real life issues and how to overcome them to achieve successful and meaningful careers. The conference also provides an opportunity for the teens to connect to and learn from local female business leaders.
This conference is unique both in its creation and purpose. Young Women LEAD is organized by the local participants of SOAR, a leadership development program designed to assist businesses in developing their women for future leadership positions. This project allows the SOAR members to practice their newly acquired leadership skills while at the same time “pay it forward” in their communities benefiting high school girls.
