The Junior Class heard a variety of prominent women in business speak about overcoming obstacles to rise in their careers at the Young Women’s Summit, at the Professional BusinessWomen of California conference at the Moscone Center today.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Mateo) and Newsweek editor-in-chief Tina Brown.  Local businesswomen “speed careers mentored” juniors by meeting briefly with groups and sharing their career stories.

“The career advice from the mentors was really helpful,” said Katherine Stableford. “I learned to be ok with being vulnerable. You have to put yourself out there in new situation.”

Jess Weiner, a writer for Seventeen magazine and motivational speaker, spoke about the advantages of young women working together instead of against each other.

“You are not too young to be mentors,” said Weiner. “There is enough love to go around.”
