First Lady Cecilia Abbott Delivers Remarks At U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber Of Commerce–Southwest Region Women In Business Symposium
First Lady Cecilia Abbott today delivered remarks at the U.S. Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce–Southwest Region’s virtual Women in Business Symposium. In her remarks, the First Lady congratulated the chamber members on their leadership in their communities and on the 20th anniversary of the symposium, which for two decades has helped Asian and other minority women-owned businesses achieve success.
“In Texas, we celebrate all of the roles that women play,” said First Lady Cecilia Abbott. "Because in the Lone Star State, we know that in all the roles you play—women are born leaders. For example, Texas is among the top states for jobs created by Hispanic, Black, veteran, and Asian women business owners – and that means more than just more paychecks for more families because in my experience, women are particularly passionate about sharing their blessings with others in need. And I thank all of the women here today for sharing your gifts with others for an even brighter Texas of tomorrow."
Among the Texas First Lady’s top priorities is her “Texanthropy” initiative, encouraging Texans to give back through volunteerism and service and shining a spotlight on entities and individuals all across Texas who are giving of themselves to help enrich the lives of all Texans.
