Just when you wonder if you’re making a difference in the world, a couple impressive women ask you to be a mentor to dozens of girls. What can you say? Of course, you say yes. I’m so glad I agreed months ago to be a mentor during the Minneapolis offering of a nearly-daylong Entrepreneurship Conference for girls. About a dozen similar conferences will take place in different cities around the US.
The big day’s finally here. During much of Tuesday, nearly 100 girls and 29 mentors will gather at the University of St. Thomas Minneapolis Campus for Girls Going Places. The girls will meet their mentors: entrepreneurs, corporate business women, former law enforcement. We’ll meet them: middle school and high school girls from Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.
Should be enlightening and fun. I hope we are able to inspire our future leaders. If the day is anything like how I felt after meeting the other women involved in this conference, we’re all in for some great talk for the future.
