Experiencing the IGNITE Young Women’s Leadership Conference

We’Ced Youth Media sent five youth reporters to attend the IGNITE Young Women’s Political Leadership Conference in San Francisco. Timed to coincide with Women’s History Month, the event focused on inspiring political activism and leadership in young women from underserved communities. “[The keynote speaker] encouraged us to find value in every position/persona we take on, because through each experience, we acquire skills to use in positions that more closely align with our aspirations. Furthermore, she encouraged us to take positions we feel under-qualified for, as qualifications can be negotiable.” They shared their reflections on We’Ced.
