Two dozen young ladies in Bermuda are poised to engage in a special empowerment retreat with an international component.


The teens, all members of the Rotary Interact clubs of Bermuda, will attend the Empowerment Girls Conference on March 25th from 9am to 1:30pm at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club where they will hear motivational speeches from a list of high powered women executives from various professions in Bermuda.


In releasing the agenda and order of events for this coming Friday, Pembroke Rotary Director Jason Taylor said: “Guest speakers include Wespeak members Laura Taylor, President of Nephila Capital; and Kendaree Burgess, CEO Bermuda Chamber of Commerce; along with Bermuda Tourism Authority’s director of global sales and business development Hazel Clarke; and Tricha Pitcher, head Aquarist of the BAMZ”.


Hamilton Rotary Director, Cathy Bassett, said today: “The Empowerment Conference is part of the Rotary District 7230 United Nations event and Bermuda fits within the district. As such the added attraction for the Interact members is a special invite to view the live stream of the program directly from the U.N. on Friday”.


The theme for the U.N. Conference is “Empowering Girls” with delegates addressing the question “How do we create a safe and more resilent world for girls as we re-open societies amidst the impact of Covid?”


The U.N. event slogan: “A better world for girls-A prosperous world for all.”
During this month of March the community has given recognition to many of the women in our society who have contributed to the well being of Bermuda for many years. In keeping with this theme the Rotary Clubs will take the opportunity to present awards to long term Rotary leaders, Director Joy Lusher and Past District Governor Barbara Edwards.


The Retreat is under the auspicies of the Rotary Clubs of Bermuda.
