Breakout sessions are developed around this year’s theme—Leadership in Action—and are headed by regional leaders whose goals are to foster leadership in business, government, and non-profit organizations that more fully reflect our region. Young professionals, mid-life women balancing family with work, and top-rung professionals can all benefit.
“I’m excited about this year’s theme, Leadership in Action. A big part of our conference takeaway is declaring a ‘word’ to help you manifest actionable goals in the coming year, and our speakers are going to help our attendees do just that!” said Rhonda Klug, WLC 2018 Conference President.
