We had the privilege to be keynote speakers at the Chicago Public School’s Department of Academic Competitions 2nd annual HER Empowerment Summit is GIRL TALK: Class in Session on December 4, 2020.
The purpose of this event is to empower young ladies in grades 11 and 12 to rise above gender and cultural norms as they continue their education, matriculate to their professional careers and through life. Some of the featured discussions included mental health, dating, peer relationships, financial literacy, social justice, and women’s and racial equality.
We shared our story with over 100 young women and discussed self advocacy along the power of owning your voice. It was so nice to see all of the uplifting comments in the chat room. Everyone was so kind and supportive. It was a great experience for us and we thank everyone who attended.
