The 2018 Women and Leadership Conference at Regis University will focus on providing opportunities for the participants to develop their own leadership skills. Women occupy more positions of power than ever before but they still struggle to be recognized as strong leaders. With a practical orientation, the conference speakers will review key learnings from research and personal experiences to empower women to take their leadership to the next level.

Our inaugural conference was a rousing success. Lively conversations and presentations focused on discussing the challenges and opportunities for women in the workplace. We want to leverage on that success and the budding networks we created to expand and build our second conference. We have an exceptional program to continue building our community.

The keynote speaker will be Crisanta Duran, the speaker of the Colorado House of Representatives. She will share her path to leadership. With this inspirational start we will continue to delve into the most critical components of leadership: leadership styles, vision, emotional intelligence and communication skills. The closing session of the conference will include a panel of extraordinary women who will share their own experiences with leadership and some advice for future leaders. You will have opportunities to network and create connections with likeminded people that can support you in your career.

This conference aligns with our Regis University mission to change and improve society. By helping our community build their skills they will be able to make positive impacts in their own lives and in society.

We hope you will leave having a set of action steps to take on in your lives that will empower you to make a difference and achieve your goals.

The conference will take place on March 3, 2018 at Regis University's Northwest Denver Campus, Claver Recital Hall, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
