Deborah Phelps, Director of The Education Foundation for Baltimore County Public Schools, was a mistress of ceremonies for the Junior Achievement’s Leading Ladies event.
On March 25, the event connected 100 area women business professionals with outstanding female high school students to celebrate successes, develop talents and inspire the next generation of women leaders. Through presentations, discussions and interactive exercises, participants benefited from strategies to navigate the complexities of change and feel empowered to share their strengths in a meaningful way.
The JA Ledger stated that the young ladies shared their goals in life. “I have many aspirations I want to achieve,” said a student from Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women. “I want to be a neurosurgeon, but I also want to be able to give back to children who have gone through similar circumstances to me so I can help them make good choices.”
JA hopes to make Leading Ladies an annual event so they can continue these rewarding conversations and advance the impact of women leaders in Maryland and beyond. To see all of the event photos, click here.
