2016 Women and Leadership – Empowering Through Knowledge

In our 4th year, we earned our first 700+ sell out crowd! Women and Leadership is the only leadership conference of its kind in Idaho. Attendees drew from throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond.   Welcoming both women and men, our conference format combines keynote presentations from accomplished women leaders in a variety of fields, skills-based training sessions that focus on professional development, and morning and evening reception events that enable attendees to connect with their peers and develop their personal networks.
