Inspiring and empowering. Relevant and motivational. Engaging and thought-provoking. These are just a few of the accolades from past attendees at the Simmons Leadership Conference, widely regarded as the gold standard of women's professional development events. Now celebrating its 35th year, the upcoming conference takes as its theme Jumping the Curve—the need to step away from the familiar and step up to the unknown in order to sustain success. The 2014 program highlights the compelling stories of dynamic thought leaders who have made these profound, creative leaps, offering guidance about how you, too, can continuously evolve your company or career on your own terms. Throughout the day, nationally renowned experts will present a full array of practical techniques and leadership strategies that you can apply both professionally and personally. And just as important, you will be in the company of 3,000 other inspiring and aspiring women professionals from diverse industries, disciplines, and backgrounds. It's an amazing day to focus, learn, network, and re-energize.

All proceeds support scholarships to students in graduate programs at Simmons College.
