Laura’s comments about accepting the opportunity to give the keynote at the 19th Annual Conference:
“The reason I want to be with you is because my passion for women and their abilities is incredibly intense. My life is becoming dedicated to this passion. I just formed a foundation called Double Standards. It’s meant to empower, educate and support women. I produced and directed a concert at Town Hall in NYC whereby recording artists, Broadway stars and comedians did duets of jazz standards. All monies went to women’s initiatives and healthcare. I think creating a culture of women supporting each other rather than pitting ourselves against each other is the key to our success.”
