“We hope this event will inspire the women of our community to chase their dreams, challenge themselves, and realize that success is attainable through drive and hard work,” said Kaci Turner, USI Panhellenic president. 

Events began Monday and run through Thursday, November 7.   Monday and Tuesday events included an “I Love Myself” campaign and a women’s leadership panel, “Breaking Through the Glass Ceiling.”
