The event will feature a panel of powerful Jamaican women who are leaders in their respective fields. Panelists will also include past recipients of the JWOF “Powerful Women…Next Generation” scholarship program. Following the panel discussion, there will be a question and answer session. The moderator will be our own ‘Next-Gen’ Board Director, Dr. Monique Blake Roswell, Dean of Libraries, and Academic Success Centers at Broward College.
Students and parents are encouraged to participate in this very informative event. JWOF will also begin accepting applications for its “Powerful Women…Next Generation” scholarship. The $5,000 ($1,250 yearly) scholarship is awarded annually to a first or second generation, Jamaican-American female graduate of a high school in Florida, to attend a post-secondary institution in the Fall of 2021.
