College Women's Leadership Conference
The stellar, student-led program under the umbrella of the University of Louisville Women’s Center, Women4Women Student Board, and Office of Civic Engagment, is the bi-annual Kentucky College Women’s Leadership Conference! People attending the conference will learn from local and national leaders, network with the leaders and other students, and begin thinking about the community around them, finding ways to begin using their skills to help the community. The learning gained through this conference is unlike learning gained from a classroom. This is not reading and answering questions in a class, this is taking elements that students may or may not have learned in class and enhancing them. Community leaders will provide concepts that students will think critically about and students will provide community leaders with networks within the University of Louisville. Not only will students be enhancing and learning new concepts, but they will be able to learn skills that are needed in order to truly be successful in the real world.
