Everyone has a story, embrace yours – 2016 Women’s Power Luncheon

Women are storytellers, they are information keepers, they are historians. Women are the keepers, in their minds and hearts, of the collected history of their families and communities. No matter whether you have a high power job or think you have lead an ordinary everyday life you still have stories. Women, more often than not, don’t embrace those stories, or the power behind those stories.
