AWE Conference Host

Hello,

Every transition – in life and career – requires a change strategy and redefining a vision for success. From the changing workplace, to managing business demands, to the quest of finding balance, undoubtedly, every woman knows that success requires thinking differently and pushing boundaries.

We have designed this year’s conference, Take the Lead: (Re) Defining Success, to help you create a “playbook” of visions, strategies and approaches to change that are practical and effective for you. We trust that you will gain new ideas and fresh perspectives, as well as feel connected, energized, empowered to take the lead in creating your definition of success.

Sincerely,

Lisa Bergeron Signature
