College Women's Leadership Conference
"Invite the Power of WE, Evoke the Power in YOU"
The stellar, student-led program under the umbrella of the University of Louisville Women’s Center, Women 4 Women Student Board, and Office of Civic Engagement, 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.
The second conference was held June 5-7, 2014 on the University of Louisville Belknap Campus. Through interactive workshops, networking sessions, and keynote segments, attending college women from throughout the state built professional and personal development. Professional women in the workforce, from a variety of cultural backgrounds, were speakers at this event. Speakers included: Valeisha Butterfield-Jones, Dawne Gee, Peggy Noe Stevens, Kay Inman and many more!
