The National Diversity Council is holding a free event sponsored by United Healthcare called Young Women in Leadership Symposium on Saturday, April 27th from 8:00am-2:00pm at the Danna Student Center at Loyola University in New Orleans. This motivational and educational event is directed to 6th-12th grade girls from the area who are looking to better themselves as young adults! The Young Women in Leadership Symposium is a phenomenal opportunity to transform the New Orleans community into a truly inclusive environment where young women are encouraged to reach their full potential.
Throughout the day the girls will be mentored by local powerhouse women from companies such as Jones Walker, Cigna Health, Source Interlink, Richard’s Disposal and more! They will be covering the following topics: “You are Gold”- Self-esteem and Confidence, “Life’s a Runway. Make Your Statement”- Fashion and Dress, “Measureable Success- The Long and Short”- Setting goals, and “Mind, Body and Soul”- Health and Wellness.
There will be a special guest appearance by the former Miss Texas International as well as a luncheon Fashion Show sponsored by Jolie and Elizabeth, a local designer whose designs have been featured in national television shows. They will be giving away items from major colleges and universities in New Orleans to encourage the girls to plan for higher education. Both breakfast and lunch will be provided to all attendees.
