Synopsis
While there are opportunities that are available for women throughout various disciplines and professions, there is still a noticeable disconnect occurring across generations of African descendent women representing diverse cultures. 2013’s Women of Power Conference will engage women leaders, across professional disciplines and age demographics in conversations about the need for mentorship, the exchange of knowledge across generational and cultural lines, the sharing of personal life lessons and how to successfully prepare future leaders using tools and resources from their cultural legacies configured to address contemporary concerns. Scholars, activists, spiritual leaders and cultural activists will lead several panels and round table conversations.
