The 2nd Annual Women’s Leadership Conference – Raising Our Voices, provides new perspectives on how women in the community and the workplace can effectively impact positive change through our various ways of speaking up – for ourselves and for others. This conference celebrates our strength in working collaboratively and the strength each of us has to contribute to making positive impact in our community.
