In her article published by the Las Vegas Sun, “See it, believe it, become it,” Lisa Levine, former member of the Nevada Board of Regents, describes the importance of investing in female leadership and her very own impactful experiences that enabled her to continue pursuing her goals. “When girls and young women see people in leadership positions who are relatable to them, look like them, and come from similar backgrounds they are empowered to know they too can become a doctor, an astronaut, a CEO and even one day, president of the United States,” Lisa writes. A Las Vegas-born, first generation college graduate, Lisa knows firsthand the value of education and mentorship. Lisa obtained a bachelor’s degree in political science and master’s degree in public administration from UNLV and she now serves as a member for the Women’s Research Institute of Nevada and Million Women Mentors of Nevada. We applaud Lisa for her community engagement and words of encouragement to support future women leaders!
