Champion Sponsorship: Young Emerging Legacy Women’s Program
We are proud to announce our Champion Sponsored Emerging Legacy Women’s Program, which provides young women ages high school up to age 26 the opportunity to attend the Conference. The program stems from the belief that young women are often discouraged from pursuing their dreams, or simply not shown the way. Legacy Women Champions are women who are willing and able to support or mentor other women who want to make a difference. Our future of the state lies with our young people, and it is incumbent upon us to open doors of possibility to them. Young women need to be encouraged to dream big and to work hard to make their dreams come true.
