Welcome to the Tampa Bay
Young Women's Leadership Symposium

If you are interested or have a passion for moving women's initiatives forward, this event is for you! The Young Women's Leadership Symposium is a phenomenal opportunity to transform our community into a truly inclusive environment where young women are encouraged to reach their full potential.


Who Should Attend

Female high school students from the Tampa Bay area. Each young woman will interact, in a small group setting, with at least one event day coach who is a female executive from an elite organization in the Tampa Bay area.


Our Mission

Promote the development of our future women leaders by giving them access to influential business women in the Tampa Bay area. The Symposium will focus on leadership, personal brand management and career/college planning.


Important Note for Parents

In an effort to create an open forum atmosphere for the young women who participate in the conference and to facilitate mentor-student communication, we strongly discourage parents from attending and participating in the Young Women's Leadership Symposium. If parents wish to stay in the area while their daughter is attending this event we welcome you explore the Epicurean Hotel or visit the sites that nearby Hyde Park has to offer.
