PEARLS for Teen Girls, Inc. continues mission of inspiring young women
On March 16, 2010 PEARLS for Teen Girls, Inc., a Milwaukee-based non-profit leadership development organization serving at-risk teen girls, will host a panel of top women leaders from the Milwaukee area as they engage in a motivational conversation about what it means to be moved to leadership.
Women Inspired to Lead: An Intimate Evening of Conversation and Inspiration will be moderated by Channel 12 WISN news anchor, Portia Young and will feature a panel of five high-profile local women leaders including:
- Jennifer Bartolotta, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Bartolotta Restaurant Group and President and Owner of Train-2-Gain;
- Geneva Bolton Johnson, retired President and CEO of Family Services of America and Families International;
- Gail Lione, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, Harley-Davidson, Inc.;
- Maria Monteagudo, Employee Relations Director for the City of Milwaukee; and
- Tawanna Jackson, PEARLS Alumna and Mount Mary College Senior.
Through powerful personal stories the women will explore the questions: What inspires individual leadership? And, what are the best strategies for inspiring leadership in others, especially in the face of today’s challenges?
Enterforce, a nationallyrecognized, Waukesha-based workforce management solutions provider, and WE Energies have joined forces as Presenting Sponsors for this important event, ensuring that every dollar raised goes directly toward supporting PEARLS’ transformational work with some of Milwaukee’s most at-risk teen girls. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Milwaukee on March 16 starting at 5:30 p.m. with a wine and hors d’oeuvre reception. The panel discussion will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. Tickets are $40 each or $300 for a table of eight.
