As mothers across the country are honored over next week, six influential Charlotte women plan to deliver a gift of wisdom, inspiration and encouragement to young girls. Girl Talk Foundation, Inc. will host the Third Annual Pass the Purse Empowerment Tea, Saturday, May 10th, 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. at the Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte. The media is invited to attend.
Sponsored by Wells Fargo, the high tea is the culmination of a mentoring initiative that pairs invited “Women of Influence” with Girl Talk participants – both middle and high school girls. Both women and girls have met over the past few months to begin building a relationship. Girl Talk Foundation, Inc. Executive Director and Founder Janine Davis said, “The goal is to create an enriching experience for both woman and girl. For the woman, it’s realizing that she has something of value to pass on to others; for the girl, it’s exposing her to see who she can be.”
During the formal tea, each pair will share their experience with the audience, and each mentor will pass to the girl a purse filled with inspirational teaching tools. Belk, Inc. donated the purses.
The six “Women of Inspiration” include:
Tanya Blackmon, President, Novant Health-Huntersville Medical Center
Dr. Maha Gingrich, assistant to the Public Information Office, Central Piedmont Community College
Felicia Hall, attorney, sports agent and President of Felicia Hall Allen & Associates
Phyllis Morey, VP and Deputy Counsel, Ingersoll Rand
Jenene Seymour, VP of Operations, NIA Construction, Inc.
Molly Shaw, Executive Director, Communities in Schools of Charlotte Mecklenburg
