Resources from the 2019 Event
EMPOWERING WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP 2019
I attended the empowering women in leadership conference 2019 as both an attendee and a speaker. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As an attendee i loved the speaker line up - and came out with a ton of learning. Everything was organized so well - the registration was a breeze; the venue was easily accessible and set up great. As a speaker - everything was so carefully organized and so well prepared. Melissa did an exceptional job on all fronts. I cannot wait for the next one!!

The entire event was uplifting, moving, and empowered all of us to remember to take a step up and believe again. It was the most inspiring two days I have spent since I began working for Penn State.

Attending the empowering women in leadership conference renewed my passion for following my dreams. Each speaker brought with them a passion about their topic that was contagious and brought an energy to the room that fueled valuable conversations. I did not expect to leave this conference making as many connections with other women as I did. I have a new path in my personal career and can’t wait to see where it leads. My calendar is marked for the 2020 conference!

I loved my experience at the empowering women in leadership conference! The speakers were all talented, dynamic women who presented meaningful, challenging content mixed with humor and sisterhood. I left feeling empowered as a woman with a renewed sense of confidence in both my professional and personal lives. Looking forward to attending next year's conference!
JESS ABRAMS SCHRODEL, M.ED., COUNSELOR, PENN STATE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY CENTER
My female colleagues and I all jumped on the chance to register for this conference as soon as we heard about it! We attended together and have had conversations since that have led us to think more deeply about who we are and how we lead. The empowering women in leadership conference offered a great mix of inspiring and practical speakers and advice, and we loved how all attendees were encouraged to engage and participate. There was such a huge demand for this conference – we have many colleagues who got waitlisted – so we hope that the conference is able to serve more women next year!
