City of Sanibel Mayor Holly Smith will be the speaker at Sanibel Captiva Business Women’s Association (SCBWA) meeting at noon Tuesday, April 19 at the Blue Giraffe 2.
Mayor Smith will be discussing women in leadership, particularly in the areas of being a business woman, a wife, a mother, and holding various leadership positions, particularly in the local government arena.
“When I was an intern with the City of Sanibel in the City Manager’s office, I found Mayor Smith to be an advocate in empowering young women in roles of leadership, whether community, business or governmental positions,” Maureen McGauran, board member of SCBWA, states.”She is someone that I look up to.”
