The Women in Leadership Conference is a gathering of women from all walks of life for a day of leadership development, networking, and empowerment. Our 2019 conference theme was The Power of Intention and we focused on 5 Pillars of Intention - Wellness, Humor, Equity, Intuition, and Gratitude. The 5th Annual Conference was held Wedenesday, October 30th at Riveredge Hospital. The Conference opened with a Power Networking Breakfast facilitated by Angela Nino and Lisa Bany of Improv Therapy Group. Linda Berger of Business Women Warriors, one of the Keynote speakers, shared about "Owning Your Seat at the Table". Reesheda Graham-Washington of RGW Consulting empowered the audience with "The Power of With: Posturing for Women Leaders in 2019 & Beyond". To follow, there was a dynamic panel discussion with Brynne Hovde of Race Conscious Dialogues, Dima Ali, an Iraqi-American activist, and Toni Ruppert of Antonia Ruppert Fine Arts. All moderated by Dr. Lizette Solis of Riveredge Hopsital. Hope England of Humor for Hope wrapped up the event on a high note with "Finding Humanity through Humor".
