"No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens." -- Michelle Obama, Former First Lady of the United States
Rooted in the philosophies of intersectional feminism, we recognize that while all women experience oppression, we also all experience oppression in varying forms based on race, age, class, gender, sexuality, dis/ability, etc. With that in mind, we want everyone at the Women's Leadership Symposium to feel supported, included, and represented. We are intentionally inclusive of transgender, nonbinary, intersex, and gender non-conforming individuals.
Throughout the day, we seek to provide participants the opportunity to learn more about their individual identities and the unique influences they have on their leadership style. Networking and teambuilding activities will allow for students to build a positive and supportive network of diverse women who vary across professional disciplines and life experiences. With these new experiences and community, student participants will have the knowledge to challenge the limitations placed on women and will have the confidence and strength to empower others.
Registration closes Friday, February 21st at 11:59pm.
