Virginia Beach, VA - Today, Congressman Scott Taylor joined the Women in Defense of Greater Hampton Roads (WIDGHR) to speak at their annual Professional Development Day. Congressman Taylor provided a legislative update to their membership and discussed the role of female leadership in military service and contracting.

“I am honored that Maria Herbert and the members of Women in Defense invited me to speak at their Professional Development Day,” said Congressman Scott Taylor. “As someone who was raised by a single-mother, I can tell you that female leadership is sorely lacking in many of our institutions today. Groups like Women in Defense are laying the foundation for the next generation of leaders by inspiring women and giving them the tools to grow and develop professionally.”
