“Where Are You?”
On June 7, 2014, Ruth’s Way, Inc. presented our community event/fund-raiser called: “Where Are You?” to the female youth at Gwen’s Girls. This venue created an open forum for adolescent girls and professional women to communicate with the goal of eliminating the biases that exist between girls and women. Nine Phenomenal Women Speakers shared their personal journeys of how they overcame various barriers and obstacles to achieve their success.
They also participated in an open forum with the girls, discussing various topics including careers, education, spirituality, success, and sacrifice. The conversation was LIFE CHANGING for all who attended! Together, we showed our youth that successful futures are still within their reach, regardless of their past or current situation, because “WHERE YOU ARE DOESN’T DEFINE WHO YOU ARE” (Ursula Burns, CEO of Xerox).
