Become a Change-maker
As attendees who return year after year attest, the Simmons Leadership Conference is the premier professional event for women. The 2012 program builds on this exemplary tradition with yet another roster of distinguished speakers from the worlds of business, science, entrepreneurship and more. In keeping with the conference theme—Innovation & Impact—the lineup includes some of the nation's visionary change-makers who recognized and seized opportunities to alter the course of their industry or profession. The knowledge and inspiration that you will gain from these extraordinary speakers—and from the collective energy of more than 2,500 business and professional women that join in this unique event—will provide powerful motivation to become a change-maker in your own life.
All proceeds support scholarships to students in graduate programs at Simmons College.
