Young Women and Leadership

Young Women and Leadership

February 15, 2019, 8:00am – 3:00pm

Boise State University, Student Union Building

For one full school day, 9th-12th-grade students will participate in keynote addresses, networking, and skill-building sessions. In its inaugural journey, we have worked with an advisory committee of educators, students, civic organizations, and community leaders to build what we hope will be a lasting impact community event. Women and men alike have lauded our original Women and Leadership Conference as a life-changing experience, and would frequently comment that they wished they had something like the adult conference for their daughter or son. We want you to know we heard you, and agree that leadership skills and the desire to grow into a future leader should begin in the teen years.
