Women & Power – What’s Possible

Women & Power – What’s Possible A Weekend at the Omega Institute: September 21 – 23, 2012

Around the globe, every day, in all sectors of society, women are breaking leadership molds, boldly demonstrating that the way it’s always been is not the way it has to be. They are changing the status quo of power, opening new paths and possibilities, not only for women, but for everybody.

At this year’s Women & Power conference, we bring together creative and courageous women to inspire you to plot your own breakthrough path–one of change, growth, and innovation–at home, at work, and in the world.

The conference is an exploration and celebration of what is possible when women trust their inventiveness to solve some of humanity’s most pressing problems. In keynotes, panels, conversations, and breakout workshops, we hear from women who are using their power and passion to make real change. Prepare to be inspired to make a difference in your own corner of the world.

Scholarships are available; please apply by August 1, 2012. This conference begins Friday at 7:30 p.m. and ends Sunday at noon. Conference attendees are invited to the Saturday evening Omega Benefit Celebration to celebrate the launch of the Omega Women’s Leadership Center.
