The YWCA Lake County is launching a series of breakfast sessions aimed at professional women as part of its 90th Anniversary Celebration. Attendees will hear a panel discussion on the topic of the Power of Empowerment.
When empowered, people gain the skills and knowledge that will allow them to overcome obstacles in life or in their work environment. Come and listen to three successful women that have been empowered and hear their stories.
