ANN INC., the parent Company of Ann Taylor and LOFT, and Vital Voices Global Partnership announces the successful completion of the third annual ANNpower Vital Voices Leadership Forum held last week in Washington, D.C. 
 
The annual event, which kicked off on June 16th, brought together 50 exceptional young women from around the United States in their sophomore and junior years of high school for four days of comprehensive leadership training and mentorship from international women leaders across the private and public sectors.
 
The 2014 ANNpower Fellows were selected from a highly talented pool of applicants for their leadership acumen and commitment to creating social progress. The intensive, four day training program provided the Fellows the opportunity to learn skills to help them spark and sustain change within their communities.
 
"I am amazed by our ANNpower Fellows and their compelling ideas for making social progress in their communities," said Kay Krill, President and CEO of ANN INC. "By providing them with real-life lessons and leadership skills from an impressive set of leaders, I hope they will leave with the confidence and tools to turn their ideas into impact."
 
Based on the Vital Voices Leadership Model, the ANNpower Leadership Forum curriculum includes training and mentorship from ANN INC. executives, global leaders from the Vital Voices Global Leadership Network, and notable women role models. Mentors and speakers provided inspiration, lessons, and real-life examples of leadership in action.
 
The ANNpower Leadership Forum also connects the Fellows to a longer-term support network of global Vital Voices leaders. "In our work, we've seen firsthand how the power of mentorship can propel women on their journey for change. Young women deserve and need role models who they aspire to be. I'm thrilled to continue our journey with ANN INC. as we leverage our complimentary networks and expertise to support these remarkable young leaders," said Alyse Nelson.
 
Armed with the skills they learn at the ANNpower Vital Voices Leadership Forum, the Fellows will return to their communities tasked with initiating their community projects. "The Forum was life changing and inspiring. I am excited to go back and see what I can do for my community," said Nadya, 2014 ANNpower Fellow. Each Fellow will be eligible to receive an ANNpower Project Grant to put her ideas into action.
 
To date, ANNpower Fellows have positively impacted more than 16,000 people in 12 countries around the world.
