The conference takes place on its Northwest Denver Campus and runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Claver Hall, Room 307.

The conference includes three notable speakers from Regis University, who will look at the current situation women face, as well as institutional, organizational and individual issues.  

Regis University professors Maria Alejandra Quijada and Eve Passerini as well as Jenna Oliver, who leads strategic communications for the College of Business and Economics, will present.

The conference is free but those interested are asked to register by March 18 at www.regis.edu/womensconference. A full schedule and speaker bios are available at the website.
