The women in this country are a force to be reckoned with and it starts with building them up as girls, which is the focus of a luncheon next week in Santa Barbara.
The non-profit Girls Incorporated is dedicated to inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
Its award-winning after school and summer programs help to empower girls ages 4-18 years-old, focusing on career and life building tools.
The luncheon's keynote speaker is Santa Barbara's Marilyn Tam who grew up in poverty as a child laborer in China and went on to become an international business leader who worked in executive roles for global companies, including Nike, Reebok, and Aveda.
"I can relate to the girls because I was one of them. I was one of them one of the ones who was doubting whether I was worthwhile," said Tam.
If you'd like to hear more of her inspirational story and support Girls Inc. the luncheon is from 11:30am-1:30pm at Fess Parker's Doubletree Resort on Thursday, November 1.
KSBY's Carina Corral will emcee the event.
