Program Seeks to Inspire S. AZ Young Women


TUCSON – U.S. Representative Martha McSally today announced her office is accepting applications for the Young Women’s Leadership Program. At the one-day event, which is open to high school girls living or attending school in the Second District, women leaders from around Southern Arizona will speak with participants about achieving more in their education and careers.

“I’m passionate about this program because it shows girls in our community that their opportunity is limitless,” said Rep. McSally. “A role model can be a powerful thing, and we have so many incredibly accomplished women in Southern Arizona. Sharing their stories of perseverance and success can inspire the next generation of young women leaders to set their goals high and let nothing stand in their way.”

In its second year of operation, the Young Women’s Leadership Program will provide participants the opportunity to engage with their peers and guests in candid discussions while sharing insights, advice, and stories. Last year’s event included women leaders in the fields of business, emergency response, education, and more.
