Women in Leadership

Our Women in Leadership event is a semi-annual gathering of women serving as program leaders, deans, development directors and similar positions — a unique forum to network for mutual encouragement and support.

The next Women in Leadership conference is April 18-19, 2017.

The gatherings are intergenerational, so women of all ages can learn from each other’s experience and wisdom. Invited guests network and collaborate, hear from a guest speaker, and have time for group interaction. They are offered a unique opportunity to explore key issues vital to their work and lifestyle.

For more information, email the Trust or call 360-694-8415.
