Young Women's Empowerment Conference Inspires Female Scholars to Look Forward

IDEA held a Young Women's Empowerment Conference on March 23 for all our female students. The theme was Tunnel Vision: Beyond this Moment, and our young ladies and female staff members wore red in honor of Women's History Month.    
 
Young women could attend sessions on self-esteem, drive, goal setting, identity, natural hair care, skin care and makeup, and career planning. Scholars rotated through three small group sessions led by professionals in the community. Following these sessions they transitioned to lunch of bacon, eggs, crabcakes, waffles, fried chicken, greens, macaroni and cheese, roasted potatoes, and fruit, provided by Indulgence Catering
 
This year's keynote speaker was Ms. Candace B. Hollingsworth, mayor of Hyattsville, Maryland. She brought the theme together and gave her story about goal setting and seeing beyond this moment.
