YWCA Names 2018 Luncheon Keynote Speaker as Real Olivia Pope

News

The Y.W.C.A. of El Paso has revealed its keynote speaker for the 2018 YWCA Luncheon is real-life gladiator, Judy Smith.

Smith has devoted her career to crisis management, and is the inspiration behind the A.B.C. hit TV series “Scandal.”

Smith is the founder and president of Smith & Company, a strategic advisory firm with offices across the country.

She’s the gladiator doing damage control on some of the most historic events, including the Iran Contra Investigation.

President of Y.W.C.A. El Paso Debbie Hand shared what she hopes people take away from listening to Smith.

“It’s women uplifting women and as a woman, you can start and maybe not have everything, but you can end up having a very powerful woman who’s fulfilled and empowering,” said Hand.

All proceeds go to the non-profit to help support and empower women and girls in the community.
