Encouraging Young Women to Become the Leaders and Advocates of Tomorrow
Yesterday, in honor of Women’s History Month , we welcomed a group of high school students to participate in a conversation with a mentoring panel at the White House. Our panel included luminaries from a diverse range of fields: Tamika Catchings, professional basketball player, and founder of Catch the Stars Foundation, which works with at-risk youth. Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America and a lifelong advocate for civil rights, workers, and women. Abbe Raven, President and CEO of A&E Networks. And Suni Williams, an astronaut who took recently took charge of the International Space Station.  Alex Wagner, News Anchor at MSNBC, moderated the panel. Each woman talked about their trajectory, their role models and influences, and gave advice on success in their career. The young people in the audience asked questions such as, “What makes a strong woman?” and “What do you do during moments of self-doubt?” It was a wonderful opportunity to have an honest dialogue between generations, and I left feeling so encouraged by the stories of the panelists and the voices of the audience. This event was one in a series to honor Women’s History Month. It was followed by a celebration with President Obama and the First Lady in the Residence. read more
