The League of Women Vot­ers of Broward County hosted a spe­cial Women’s His­tory Month event called “Women in Lead­er­ship Fo­rum.” It took place at the Main Li­brary Au­di­to­rium in down­town Fort Laud­erdale.

This event fea­tured prom­i­nent Broward County lead­ers such as Bertha Henry, Broward County ad­min­is­tra­tor; Josie Ba­callao, pres­i­dent & CEO of His­panic Unity of Florida; and Jo­ce­lyn Carter-Miller, the cur­rent LWV Broward pres­i­dent who served as chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer for Of­fice De­pot and Mo­torola.

The au­di­ence was treated to an in­spir­ing evening with per­sonal and pro­fes­sional sto­ries. Henry spoke pas­sion­ately about be­ing fear­less. Ba­callao ad­vised that be­ing assertive and seek­ing out in­flu­en­tial peo­ple can go a long way, and Carter-Miller pro­vided a very pointed ex­am­ple about tak­ing risks that cap­ti­vated the at­ten­dees.
