The goal of the event is to promote the development of future leaders by providing young women access to mentors. It will focus on leadership, college and career planning, diversity, advocacy for girls and more. Lisa Dollinger, chief communications officer of Clear Channel Communications, will present the keynote address.

"The TXDC remains diligent in working to achieve its mission of providing outreach efforts to our youth that inspire them to achieve without limits and to become successful leaders in their schools and communities," said Angeles Valenciano, vice president of business development for the Texas Diversity Council. "On behalf of Dennis Kennedy, our CEO and founder, we are grateful to The University of Texas at San Antonio for their support of this program and all our efforts."

The symposium will include three workshops: Forget the Damsel in Distress... Be Your Own Hero, The Real Value of a College Degree: More Than Just the Benjamins ($) and Table Etiquette.

Hosted throughout the state by the Texas Diversity Council, the Young Women's Leadership Symposium can help transform a community into a more inclusive environment where young women are encouraged to reach their full potential.
