Join the Junior League of Los Angeles as the Legacy Leadership Circle presents Tori Murden McClure, the featured guest, for the inaugural LLC Distinguished Speakers Series.

Tori will deliver thoughts on self-empowerment and how women leaders of all ages can overcome major obstacles in order to achieve their short and long term goals. Tori’s perspective is grounded in her own life lessons as the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
