Inaugural TEDxEvansStreet event at the Florence Little Theatre
September 22, 2017
Nexsen Pruet member Marguerite Willis was a featured speaker at the inaugural TEDxEvansStreet event on Thursday, Sept. 21, at the Florence Little Theatre.
With the theme of “The Audacity to Dream,” speakers and performers shared the dreams that have become realities that are forever changing society, in hopes of sparking those that may not have the audacity to dream to act, resulting in ultimately forever impacting institutions.
Dedicated to advancing women’s issues, particularly in the area of economic empowerment, Mrs. Willis speaks first hand to using one’s voice and vote to make change. What is her one voice/one vote idea worth spreading?
