âOur world is in the midst of great economic change. This change offers many opportunities for women in the workplace and young women soon to become part of it. For this reason we at the Guardian, in cooperation with Working Woman Magazine, are sponsoring a nationwide search for young women who make a difference in their communities. Young women must show potential for personal success through their entrepreneurial gusto and keen financial sense. The rules are changing on the financial playing field and we are looking to develop leadership among the young women of our nation in order to meet the challenges of tomorrow,â said Anita Bryant of Innovative Planning Services, Woodbury, and general agent of Guardian Life Insurance Company of America.
