About the Women's Leadership Conference
The University of Idaho's Women's Leadership Conference invites all women in higher education – students, staff and faculty - to convene to celebrate our differences and create an empowered campus community more inclusive of women as a group, irrespective of gender identification, sexual orientation, religion, race, ethnicity, ability, or socioeconomic background. Since 2007, the Women’s Leadership Conference has provided an opportunity for women in the region to engage in dialogue and professional development around issues impacting their work, personal goals, skills, and journeys.The Women’s Center and Athena (the University of Idaho Women’s Professional Organization) partner to create the Women’s Leadership Conference. Committee members from across campus, and from neighboring institutions, work for nearly a year to create a conference experience that responds to current needs of women. Past conferences have sessions focused on women in leadership, transition between professional and personal roles, development of skills and competencies in communication, and exploration of current research on women and gender. Conference Planning Committee Volunteers Needed!
Athena and the UI Women’s Center are seeking individuals interested in serving on the planning committee for the 2012 Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC).
