Women’s Leadership Conference

Women’s Leadership Conference: April 20, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., The Westin Michigan Avenue

The  Women’s Leadership Conference, originally started in 2008 as a culmination for women who completed the Women’s Leadership certificate through Loyola’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS).  Since then, according to Carolyn Gosselin, program director at SCPS, the event has grown to a 150 person day of workshops, speakers, and networking.

This year the keynote speaker is Dr. Diane Osgood of Osgood Sustainability Consulting, who is a global expert in food sustainability and human rights issues. In addition, she advises Fortune 500 companies and is a senior adviser for the Clinton Global Initiative.  The conference, whose theme this year is “Resilience,” includes a morning inspirational speaker, a panel of women discussing their leadership journey, a luncheon with a keynote speaker, afternoon workshops on different issues facing women and leadership, and a final opportunity to network with fellow conference attendees.  The conference is open to anyone–undergraduate students to working professionals, and will be presented in an educational context that offers tools women can apply to their lives immediately.
