Own Your Story 19th Annual Women’s Leadership Conference

We are pleased to announce that Barbara Walters will be our closing keynote speaker for the 2014 Bay Path College Women’s Leadership Conference, which will be held on Friday, April 25th.

The theme of the 19th annual conference is Own Your Story. 

Each of us has a story. We must reflect on what our story is, give voice to it,let it ground us as an individual or company, and then own it. With all of its triumphs and trials, we must embrace our story authentically, honestly, and proudly. Doing so allows us to claim the impact we’ve had on our family, community, and workplace. Every day, we add to our story; we can’t erase what happens, but we can learn to tell it with humor and grace. Our story is unique — it makes us who we are.

Join us April 25th for a day of personal stories, insightful perspectives, and valuable networking opportunities.

Please share your thoughts about this year’s theme here or on our Facebook page and stay tuned for more information about this year’s speakers! 

As always, we will have an exciting mix of inspiring keynote speakers and skill-building breakout sessions.
