Laura Webb, president of Webb Insurance Group will participate in a panel for the “Global Action Summit 2019: Empower all Women and Girls” this October. This summit will take place in Tampa on Saturday, October 19th, 2019.
The event, held by the Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, aspires to empower women and girls to take action globally. The 2020 event theme is “Elevating Our Voices Toward Gender Equality.” The panel is comprised of women in leadership roles including Laura herself. Their focus will be to explore this theme by discussing the challenges and opportunities that they have encountered throughout their educational and career paths.
Laura expressed her excitement for the event by saying, “It is so fulfilling to be selected for this panel. We all have to start somewhere, so I am really proud to be at a place in my life where I have the ability to encourage the next generation of women leaders.”
This panel will also discuss the service roles they have undertaken and how their work connects to expanding access to education for young women. “It is so humbling to have the opportunity to share my background and advocate for girls,” said Laura Webb.
All USF undergraduates attending the event will earn a Global Citizen Award and Girl Scouts in attendance will receive a 2020 Global Action Award. Each summit is held in honor of “The Day of the Girl” and in connection to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals to continuously drive the promotion for change.
