Conversations That Do Make a Difference!

Last night, in the company of  two hundred men and women,I, attended the “Women’s Economic & Leadership Forum’s” dinner in Monterey County.

An evening of good wine, food, conversation and most importantly continued ENLIGHTENMENT and HOPE !

An evening where courageous women shared their stories.Women, who’ve broken down the walls that could have prohibited them from reaching their dreams.Why, because they were given a chance, they had a mentor, someone who cared when others gave up. Women, who recognize that to grow, conversations, intimate discussions,  such as these must continue. Women must speak up and be willing to ask the hard questions, while recognizing that it’s not simply about empowering women, but also supporting each other. We need to have an honest perspective on life and our cultural and biological differences.

The goal of organizations such as ‘WELI ‘, is to educate, so we can have a balanced mix of men and women involved in economic prosperity and Global leadership .

An investment  today, in educating women right here, in America, is an investment in future generations. Studies show, time and time again,that when a woman succeeds, her family does too, and when a family thrives a community thrives.

Thank you, WELI, IMPOWER and the eloquent, speakers, Teresa Matsui Sanders and Kathy Matsui…passionate advocates for Women’s continuing education programs.

Women who OWN IT, FEEL IT and are now LIVING IT!
