Women of Power: First Lady Michelle Obama speaks to a crowd of powerful women
Speaking to a room full of entrepreneurs, CEOs, and C-Suite executives at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, D.C., First Lady Michelle Obama called on the leading women to help her in moving her Let Girls Learn initiative forward.
“I can’t help but see myself in these girls. I can’t help but see my daughters in these girls and I just can’t walk away,” FLOTUS said to the room of power women after showing a clip from her new 62 million girls campaign.
Currently, 62 million girls around the world are not enrolled in school and President Obama and First Lady Obama have made it their commitment to change that. Their government-wide effort calls on the support of organizations, community leaders, and top business people to invest in advancing the educational opportunities for all young women.
