The first lady is being joined by the women – as well as Denyce Graves, Kerry Washington, Debbie Allen, Maggie Daley, Lisa Leslie, Bobbi Brown, Dominique Dawes, Phylicia Rashad, Alfre Woodard, Penny Pritzker and Gen. Ann Dunwoody – to speak to students in Washington, D.C.-area high schools about setting career goals. The Thursday visits are part of Women’s History Month, reports The Washington Post.
