'Girl Talk' shows students diverse career options
Fourth- and fifth-grade girls at Northern Elementary took home a pocketful of advice from nearly four dozen successful women who shared their career stories in the first-ever Girl Talk community event. The diverse women chatted with students in small groups after a short keynote from Judge Pamela Goodwine, who encouraged the children to persevere. “Each of you can do and be whatever you want. You are our future,” she told the attentive girls. “Whatever obstacles you face do not define who you are. Dream big! We are here to help you.”
