“Tomorrow’s Women Leaders Today” Conference
This political leadership event is exclusively for local young women in high school and college. All young women throughout the Bay Area are welcome. Lunch will be provided.
The venue is accessible by BART & AC Transit (8 minute walk from Downtown Berkeley BART)
Our IGNITE team is planning a jam-packed day with:
Keynote Speaker: Compton Mayor Aja Brown
On June 4th, 2013, the people of Compton elected Mayor Aja Brown as the youngest Mayor in the city’s history and the second female Mayor in 40 years. She won by a landslide, defeating two existing incumbents on a platform of revitalizing her city. Mayor Brown is a community development professional with over 10 years experience. She has dedicated her career to bringing change to disadvantaged communities and has built a legacy of developing and implementing public policies to facilitate growth and protect community assets. Throughout her career, Mayor Brown has fought for transparency, collaboration and community involvement.
We can think of no better person than Mayor Brown to inspire young women to take leadership in their own communities!
