Join us again next year - April 23, 2014!A special thanks for all of our speakers, sponsors and attendees for another amazing Conference! We hope to see you all in 2014!
Building on its decades-long standing as the premier professional event for women, the Simmons Leadership Conference again presents a phenomenal program guaranteed to inform, empower, and energize participants. Women of Influence is a fitting theme for the 2013 event, featuring exceptional speakers who have not only shaped their own professional destinies but also, through their example, inspired others to strive for greatness. The full-day agenda offers a variety of skill-building workshops, topical panel discussions, a corporate marketplace, and the chance to network with more than 3,000 women at all stages of their careers. Attendees also have special opportunities to interact with the speakers during question-and-answer sessions as well as book-signing breaks. An extraordinary experience awaits.
All proceeds support scholarships to students in graduate programs at Simmons College.
