Today we hosted our annual Women’s Leadership Luncheon – where we come together to recognize the historic contributions of two pioneering women by inviting female community leaders to share their own stories of success. The luncheon gives LAUSD students an opportunity to meet accomplished women from a variety of professions, and engage in insightful conversations about their career paths.

This year, L.A. Sparks President & COO Christine Simmons, actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell, and radio personality Josefa Salinas joined 300 high school girls to discuss the challenges of working in male-dominated industries, the #MeToo movement, and the importance of never giving up on a dream.
