The League of Women Voters of Broward County hosted a special Women’s History Month event this year, the Women in Leadership Forum on Tuesday, March 22, 2016 at the Main Library Auditorium in downtown Ft. Lauderdale.
This event featured prominent Broward County leaders such as Bertha Henry, Broward County Administrator; Josie Bacallao, President & CEO of Hispanic Unity of Florida; and Jocelyn Carter-Miller, the current LWV Broward president, who served as Chief Marketing Officer for Office Depot and Motorola.
The audience was treated to an inspiring evening, with personal and professional stories. Mrs. Henry spoke passionately about being fearless. Mrs. Bacallao advised that being assertive and seeking out influential people can go a long way. While, Mrs. Carter-Miller provided a very pointed example about taking risks that captivated the attendees.
“I was so proud to be a league member tonight,” exclaimed Harriet Mathis.
“It was like having an intimate conversation with a girlfriend,” shared former LWV Broward president Jane Gross.
