2020 Illinois Women in Leadership Symposium – Pivoting to Possibilities

October 15 @ 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Pivoting To New Possibilities is our theme for this year’s 5th annual IL Women in Leadership symposium and a 2020 mantra. Women at every level of leadership, providing guidance in varying and unique settings have done so with clear intention, consistency and uncompromised commitment, even in uncertain times. As Reese Witherspoon so eloquently said: “Do you know any woman, in any crisis situation who has absolutely no idea what to do?” Amidst navigating through a global health crisis, healthcare disparities, racial inequity and social causes that frame our future, we continue to champion for change. Our voices count and this year our nation commemorated the centennial anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote. This November, as we exert that right by casting our vote for the Presidential election, despite political party affiliation we celebrate a milestone of the very first female BIPOC as a VP candidate being on the ballot. Through it all, the imperative of diversity, equity and inclusion has remained at the forefront, and women’s roles as leaders have never been more vital. We’re in this together, let’s Pivot to New Possibilities!

This year’s program engages on these compelling topics: Wear Your Crown with Pride (And Help Straighten Hers), Do it for the Gram: The Power of Social Media, Curb Appeal: The Value of Intentional Design, Actually, I Did and Said that First, Keynote: Pivot to New Possibilities
