Welcome to the

Young Women Leadership Symposium

What is the Young Women's Leadership Symposium?

A phenomenal opportunity to transform our community into a truly inclusive environment where young women are encouraged to reach their full potential.

Who Should Attend?

The Young Women's Leadership Symposium seeks to bring together female middle and high school students from their local area that have been nominated by school administrators or other special interest organizations

Event Coaches and Mentors

Each of the young women will have the opportunity to interact, in a small group setting, with at least one mentor who is an executive from an elite organization in each respective city.

Our Mission

The mission of the Young Women's Leadership Symposium is to promote the development of future business leaders by giving young women access to mentors and businesses that support their goals. The Symposium will focus on leadership, college and career planning, diversity, advocacy for girls and much more.

Co-Founders

The Young Women's Leadership Symposium (YWLS) developed in 2009 because of our passion to assist with leading and preparing our young women for the future. It was our vision to plan and implement a Saturday-morning event that would provide a learning opportunity for young female students from various backgrounds, ethinicities and socio-economic communities. With the assistance of dedicated volunteers, the inaugural event was designed to provide young women an opportunity to meet, hear from, and spend valuable time with corporate professionals and organizational leaders.

The excitement, importance and success of our Tampa events have spread...the word is out! As a result, the growth and reach of the YWLS has expanded nationally, reaching young women across the United States. It is our sincere hope that you will review all of the opportunities to participate and assist in a city near you. We will continue to enhance and expand this exciting and valuable educational opportunity for young women throughout the footprint of the National Diversity Council. It is a phenomenal opportunity to transform our community into a truly inclusive environment where young women are encouraged to reach their full potential.
