Mark your calendars for the 2018 Momentum Leadership Conference, to be held February 27th and 28th at the BJCC.
The biennial leadership conference is an opportunity for professionals from across the state to experience Momentum. We expect 800 participants at the 2018 conference, making it the largest event focused on women in leadership in our state. The 2018 conference theme is Better Together: Uniting Leaders. The theme is reflective of Momentum’s work to involve the entire professional community, women and men working together for a common goal: to ensure that top talent is represented in leadership, regardless of gender.
Increasingly research reports support the notion that when leadership reflects the diversity of the community it represents, businesses achieve better outcomes. Many businesses support this idea. So why don’t we see more parity for women in leadership?
Many of the factors that contribute to the under-representation of women in leadership roles are the result of unconscious bias, not overt sexism. In other words, many unconscious micro-decisions, made by men and women alike, can adversely affect a woman’s career opportunities. This year’s conference will focus on increasing universal awareness of how we can work together to achieve more.
Two nationally recognized keynote speakers, nine program sessions to choose from, and lots of networking time will leave you inspired with lots of valuable take-aways.
Online registration is open now, with early bird rates through January 5th and discounts for groups of 8 or more.
