Champions of Women: A Message of Inspiration

The 2018 Women’s Leadership Conference will highlight why it is so important for every business to be champions of women in the workplace. The conference will feature a message of inspiration, as well as key breakout sessions and a panel discussion focusing on practical topics that will enable you to bring useful tips and ideas back with you to your workplace.

Our keynote speaker, Carey Lohrenz, is a former lieutenant in the United States Navy. Lohrenz was the first fully qualified female naval aviator to fly the F-14 Tomcat in the United States military. Her message will drive your team to achieve peak performance, all while leading with courage and not shying away from a challenge.

On our panel, you will hear from:

  • Farad Ali, president and CEO, The Institute
  • Leah Brown, president and CEO, A10 Solutions
  • Margaret Spellings, president, UNC system

Through our breakout sessions, we will cover a variety of topics key to the overall theme of the conference. Those who go to the conference will be able to select the sessions that they attend. Those sessions include:

  • How Women and Men Communicate Differently at Work
  • Why Championing Women is Good for Business
  • Workplace Advocacy
  • Building Your Personal Brand
  • Finding Your Strengths and the Strengths of Your Team
