KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dr. Allatia Harris, San Jacinto College Vice Chancellor for Strategic Initiatives, Workforce, Community, and Diversity & President of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges
“Our [AAWCC] mission calls us to help women, whether students or employees, maximize their potential. We accomplish this through the work of our chapters, regional conferences, and national professional development opportunities, such as LEADERS.” – Dr. Harris
Please join Mountain View, Brookhaven and El Centro Colleges’ for our Third Annual Women’s Leadership Conference, where executives, professionals and motivational leaders will share their perspectives, models, and approaches for advancing women in organizations. As the percentage of women in the boardroom has stagnated between 15-16 percent over the last several years, and the number of female executive officers has risen only slightly to 14 percent, it remains imperative for us to take actions that will advance women within organizations.
This conference will be an inspirational and fun day where we will take a comprehensive look at the advancement of women- beginning with what individuals can do by establishing their own education, health and personal goals. Our focus will be on empowering and embracing women by developing their character, courage, and commitment to becoming successful and confident leaders.
Among the topics we will discuss are:
• Leading Stress Free- The Leaders Guide to Stress Free Leadership
• It's Time: Commit to YOU!
• Finance and Women: Become Courageous In Managing Debt and Empowered to Budget, Save and Invest!
• The Crossroads: Finding The Courage To Choose The Right Path
• Lean In and Change the World
• 5 Reasons Why Your Resume Is Being Overlooked
• Leadership Transformation: You and Your Community
Our mission and learning outcome for The Women’s Empowerment Conference is to empower and equip our students with the tools needed to achieve their educational, professional and personal goals.
Speakers, entertainers and entrepreneurs will inspire and educate as the participants gain a wealth of knowledge about business, health, self-esteem and their future.
