The networking luncheon will provide high school and college student attendees the opportunity to connect with female leaders from various industries such as aviation, medicine, entertainment, and sports. Notably, leaders will be stationed at pre-assigned tables where attendees can converse with them in a casual setting and learn more about their respective career journeys.
