Women's Leadership Conference
About the 2018 Women's Leadership Conference
On Sept. 15, 2018, more than 400 professional women gathered for this year’s Women’s Leadership Conference, presented by the Center for the Advancement of Women at Mount Saint Mary’s University.
Emerging and established leaders came to gain actionable insights from pacesetters in their fields and communities — including how to provide unwavering stability amidst ever-changing landscapes, and why self-care is such a vital tool for sustained, influential leadership.
A theme of “Responding to the Call: Leading in Times of Change,” drove workshops, conversations and panels on topics like the ROI of gender-balanced leadership, how to tackle implicit bias in the workforce, and the power of storytelling for social change. Speakers came from industries as varied as media, finance, government, healthcare, nonprofits, education and wellness.
