BOISE – Knowledge empowers. That’s the message of this year’s Women and Leadership Conference. Hosted by the Andrus Center for Public Policy, the conference brings nationally-known business, cultural and civic leaders to Boise State while offering skill-building workshops and networking opportunities.

Women and Leadership, which is open to women and men, is now in its fourth year at Boise State. The schedule has expanded to two full days to accommodate more workshops, including Leadership with Integrity, Language and Leadership, and a WordPress bootcamp.

Betty Ann Waters of the Innocence Project, Kate Swanborg of DreamWorks Animation, and Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Amy Ziering are among the keynote speakers. There will also be a special screening of the film The Hunting Ground.

Boise State employees are encouraged to register soon to ensure a spot. Jay Stephens, VP of Boise State Human Resources, reminds staff and faculty that Women and Leadership is a professional development conference applicable to both women and men. If your professional development plan includes content covered at Women and Leadership and your Supervisor approves the time off, that time is not subject to annual leave.

Women and Leadership will take place on September 14 and 15 in the Student Union’s Jordan Ballroom. Registration is $195 and includes eight keynote sessions, two skill builder workshops, two breakfasts and lunches, two networking events, and a reception.
