This spring, Gustavus Women in Leadership will host its 9th annual Gustavus Women in Leadership Conference “Empowerment: We Rise by Lifting Others” at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel, formerly the Sofitel Hotel, on Friday, April 26 from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm. At Gustavus Women in Leadership, we believe we rise by lifting others and have dedicated this year’s conference to engaging in thoughtful conversation about empowerment through mentorship and collaboration. Attendees will hear from accomplished women from varied backgrounds who have achieved real success and who have benefited from mentors to help advance their lives both professionally and personally. Today, these women pay it forward by helping to lift up others. The day will consist of a light breakfast and seated lunch, two general sessions, two 45-minute breakout sessions where attendees can choose among four different presentations to attend and, of course, wonderful opportunities to network throughout the conference with fellow attendees. There will be a cocktail reception immediately following the conference.
