Women's Leadership Conference

Banner for the Women's Leadership Conference in 2017

Thank you to the more than 400 professional women and rising leaders who came together for the 2017 Women's Leadership Conference at Mount Saint Mary's University!

Our theme this year was "The Resilient Leader," with more than 40 speakers sharing their insights and lessons learned. Why resiliency? Because by learning resilience, emerging leaders find it easier to stay grounded, bounce back from difficult situations and harness the successes that propel careers forward.

Thank you to all of our speakers, partners, sponsors and attendees who make this event such a powerful, motivating and empowering time together! This conference is presented annually by Mount Saint Mary’s Center for the Advancement of Women -- and we will be back again in 2018!

Each year at the Women's Leadership Conference, attendees have the chance to:

  • Discover strategies and tools to enhance your skills and elevate your career.
  • Gain access to successful leaders who will share their expertise and leadership insights.
  • Connect with other dynamic, professional women.
  • Get inspired!
