The one-day conference for women was built around growing and nurturing women leaders. Featuring 25+ speakers, 35+ exhibitors, keynote luncheon and networking reception.
Participants in Heart of Florida United Way’s annual “Day of Action,” one day a year aimed at community-wide volunteerism, will focus on reducing the summer reading gap, which is the gradual decline of reading proficiency while children are away from the classroom. In an effort to encourage reading and foster literacy in youth, volunteers will engage in a variety of activities, including reading aloud, creating skits and playing rhyming games or “word BINGO.” Volunteer projects will take place at partner agencies throughout the community, including Orlando Day Nursery Association, Winter Park Day Nursery, Schools and Communities: Together for Tomorrow, PACE Center for Girls and more. Volunteers can sign up to participate online at http://www.HFUW.org.
