Women’s Leadership Conference

The Women’s Leadership Conference is an event held to coincide with Women’s History Month and is designed to bring female leaders from Mid-Missouri together to discuss the past, present, and future of women’s leadership on a global level. The conference is built upon three pillars: networking, education, and equality.

Date of WLC:
Saturday, March 14th, 2015
The conference incorporates students, staff, alumni, and community members as speakers and presenters. The content highlights issues focused on women leaders in a collegiate setting and beyond. These issues will be discussed through a keynote speaker, various breakout sessions, and special presentations. Topics we hope to cover include but are not limited to visioning, work/life balance, leading with passion, feminism, self-awareness, strengths-based leadership, and professional development.

We believe everyone has the ability to lead and create positive change. The Women’s Leadership Conference is a resource for collegiate women to use as they plan and achieve their professional and personal goals. We accomplish this by embodying our three pillars throughout the conference planning process.

Networking
There is no better way to kickstart your leadership than through finding out about new opportunities. The Women’s Leadership Conference is a forum for community members to share their experiences and support each other’s’ goals.

Education
The one-day conference highlights topics and issues relating to women’s leadership in a collegiate setting and beyond. Attendees will also learn ways to improve their leadership skills and how to utilize their personal strengths.

Equality
The Women’s Leadership Conference hopes to contribute to a global society in which women are equal, active leaders and citizens. This community event is designed for women and men from all backgrounds.

Organizers
The Women’s Leadership Conference is a collaboration between the Center for Leadership & Service and the Women’s Center.

The best part of WLC is the fact that it introduces and encourages the concept of mentorship among women in our community. It’s a forum for learning about what the power of our peers can do for us.Hilary Weaver
