Local leaders share what ignited their passion for public service

Join the Junior of League of Raleigh (JLR) on March 27 for their fourth annual Women in Public Service Panel, a discussion with influential women leaders in various fields that impact our community.

“This year, we’re thrilled to have notable panelists, such as Mayor Nancy McFarlane, State Auditor Beth Wood and Retired Associate Justice Barbara Jackson, share what sparked their passion for service and their recommendations for others who aspire to serve in public service as well,” said Emily Petersohn, a member of the event planning committee. “We hope the panel, which is free and open to the public, will provide attendees with insight on both the successes and obstacles women leaders face.”

“The JLR serves as a training resource for our members and the community. We’re so pleased to have some tremendous women participating in the Women in Public Service Panel. Their wisdom and personal stories shared during these discussions have been known to be invaluable and inspiring to all of those who have attended previous panel events. We know this year’s event will be no different,” continued Tia Reaves, Co-captain of the event.

We hope to see you at this month’s event, which will be held at the Julia Jones Daniels Center for Community Leadership at 711 Hillsborough Street in Raleigh. A reception with light refreshments kicks off the event at 6:30 p.m. and the panel question and answer session begins at 7 p.m. Additional information can be found here.
