The Morning Mentoring Sessions
"Opportunities to network and talk in a formal setting do not
come that often for girls my age, so it’s so impactful when they do."
"So many of my conversations showed me that successful women
focus on both their professional achievement and their personal
happiness. A lot of the time, those two things support and contribute
to each other. It’s great to see women who are emotionally healthy as
they conquer the world."
"I learned that no matter what field you go into, the same
lessons in life almost always apply."
"Coming into the morning session, I felt pretty set on what
careers I was looking into, but speaking with the mentors helped me
realize there is so much that I can do. The women have all
accomplished amazing things, and it was a great experience for me to
hear about how they reached the level of success that they have. Most
of all, I learned that you have to be open to change, because you
never know where life will take you."
The Luncheon and Presentations
"It was amazing! The Cool Women luncheon will always be one of
my favorite events."
"I was seated at an amazing table with a variety of different
people, who I shared common interest with or could learn something from."
"I loved, loved, loved seeing my sister Girl Scouts up on the stage."
"I liked hearing other Emerging Leaders speak, using what they
learned in the workshop."
The Overall Cool Women Experience
"As I grow and develop, I know that programs like this make all
the difference in my personal and professional development. I love
connecting with the girls, professionals, and women whose stories
impact my life more than I can begin to express."
"I loved the opportunities this program opened for me, even
after the luncheon was over."
"I participated in Cool Women last year and thought that it was
an invaluable experience in practicing networking and business skills.
I was excited to return through the Emerging Leaders program to meet
more people, practice public speaking, and understand more about
"I want to become a Cool Woman in the future. They are so
incredible, and that shows great success."
