(KUTV) Fresh Living sat down with leaders from Women's Leadership LIVE to get details on a great conference coming up in downtown Salt Lake City.
Women’s Leadership LIVE works to promote business, career and leadership opportunities for women. We are clearly underrepresented in leadership. Women are 51% of the population but only 20% of Congress. Women make 80% of household spending decisions, but only 5% of Fortune 500 companies are led by female CEOs. Only 16% of public companies’ board members are women. We believe we can change that. It’s not about setting quotas, but about having a diversity of experiences and perspectives in decision-making roles.
Our conferences give aspiring leaders unparalleled access to the experts who have walked in their shoes. Through main-stage speakers, breakout sessions, and one-on-one conversations we share proven strategies for real-world success.
It will be held October 13-15 at the Grand America Hotel. Discounted conference rate of $650 (instead of $800) if you sign up before October 1, plus discounted room rate at the Grand America Hotel.
