5th Annual Women's Leadership Conference

Wednesday & Thursday, November 2-3, 2016

Verizon Wireless Center


During the annual YWCA Women’s Leadership conference attendees are provided the opportunity to explore together with open minds how women lead, build meaningful connections, discuss trends in leadership and learn strategies and tools to take back to our family, organizations and community.

The Conference provides a unique experience in that we learn through sharing of stories and experience from our speakers and fellow attendees.
