Start­ing at 7 p.m. at the town­ship build­ing, three speak­ers will talk about the chal­lenges they had to over­come in their ca­reers.

This par­tic­u­lar pro­gram, called “Next Up,” is meant to in­spire younger women to be­come the next up-and-com­ing lead­ers in their re­spec­tive com­mu­ni­ties.
