“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent,” may go down in history as one of the most empowering pearls of wisdom quoted from Eleanor Roosevelt. That brief statement made an impact on girls and young women of the time, and continues to today. But pearls of wisdom don’t just originate from people in the news, but from people we meet every day – those who inspire, lead and empower members of our community.
YWCA Tampa Bay recognized and celebrated that leadership, inspiration and encouragement during the organization’s Pearls of Wisdom luncheon event on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park. This inspiring event also awarded Gems of the Community – women who have made a significant impact, crossed racial, economic or societal boundaries and empowered others in a variety of areas including business, philanthropy, community service and under 30.
