HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – The Hanscom Chapel will host a Women in Leadership Prayer Breakfast at the chapel annex here March 30 beginning at 8 a.m.
The event will honor Women’s History Month as well as the 2023 theme of “Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories.”
“This is an opportunity for us to tell our stories as women; how we have progressed to become leaders in our own lives through the joy and the struggles,” said Chaplain (Maj.) Kimberly Hall, installation chaplain and organizer for the event.
Latashia White, a representative for Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, will serve as the speaker for the event.
White previously served in the U.S. Air Force, including four years at the 753rd Electronic Systems Group here at Hanscom AFB.
She now works for the City of Boston Veteran Services as a transition advocate, working to connect active duty, guard members and veterans to helping organizations throughout Massachusetts and the nation.
Following the breakfast portion of the event, attendees will be able to discuss their experiences in becoming leaders, both personally and professionally.
“The intent is not to stay in the valley with our struggles, but share how we survived, how we overcame obstacles, and how we never gave up,” said Hall. “I want everyone who gathers for this event to leave feeling encouraged, inspired, and strengthened.”
The event is open to all individuals with base access.
“It’s important our male and other colleagues feel invited to the discussion, because ultimately it could help them become better leaders as well,” said Hall.
No preregistration or fees are required to attend this event.
