About the Conference
Denison University's Alford Community Leadership and Involvement Center, in partnership with the Office of Gender & Sexuality, are co-hosting a women’s leadership development conference to explore and transform the leadership experience of women. The EmpowHERment Experience, a women’s leadership development conference, defines leadership as: "the distinct ways in which leaders use their development of self-awareness and social identities to interact and shape the world around them." This initiative seeks to translate the leadership character of women into action, bring awareness to the art of leadership as an interdependent identity journey, and promote holistic wellness and justice for self and others. If you are a campus leader, seeking more information on creating a vision, or wanting to learn more about your own leadership approach, we invite you to join us in our exploration of leadership! The EmpowHERment Experience centers the experiences of women but is open to people of all genders. Registration is open to the public, including all Denison students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the non-Denison community. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all sessions will be presented virtually with in-person meeting spaces available for Denison students, staff, and faculty. All off-campus guests must attend virtually. Please visit reopen.denison.edu for more information regarding our COVID-19 policies.
