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 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.
The next Women in Leadership conference is May 30-31, 2018: Bringing Your Full Self to Leadership
How do we navigate leadership as women?
How do we integrate and bring all of who we are?
How do we invest in and develop ourselves as leaders?
