During the month of March, HEAF honored and acknowledged the unique experience of being female today. Our Women’s History Month events and programs provided students with the opportunity to reflect on female leaders and role models from their own lives, and lessons learned from these incredible women, as well as the chance to connect with women who are superheroes in their lives and industries.

Let Her Lead: Empower. Connect. Celebrate.
Our culminating event honored and acknowledge the unique experience of being female today and was an opportunity for our young women to connect with female role models and leaders and engage in authentic discussion. As our young women are growing and developing personally and professionally, it is important to engage them in shared experiences, and narratives of women who have overcome barriers and continue to achieve success while dealing with the struggles of life.
