I recently attended a women’s leadership luncheon hosted by The Women’s Resource Center in Philadelphia. The organization provides free or low-cost legal outreach, career advice and other various important programs to help benefit women and young girls in the area. If you live in the Philadelphia area, click here to learn more about the center and see if you would like to join them in their volunteer efforts. The luncheon featured awards and highlighted the accomplishments of many significant women who have worked to improve the great city of Philadelphia. It was heartwarming to see so many people working to benefit women’s livelihood in the city.
But the best part was hearing the great author, Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love and Commitment speak. She came to support the center’s mission and spoke about how women helping each other is one of our greatest talents and an invaluable resource. She also spoke about some of the trials and tribulations she experienced living in New York City in her younger years and also reminisced about some of her more solemn moments traveling around the world.
