Sponsors, Exhibitors Sought for Women's Conference
Looking for ways to foster leadership and make a positive difference in the lives of women in the community? On April 11, 2006, College of the Canyons will host a one-day women's leadership conference from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the COC campus. Conference project leaders invite both individual community leaders and organizations to contribute to this cause by becoming sponsors and exhibitors at the conference. The conference will allow sponsors and exhibitors to publicize their organization and help support female leadership in the community.
The goal of the Women's Leadership Conference is to provide information that will have long-lasting, positive impacts in the lives of both men and women in the Los Angeles, Ventura, Santa Clarita, San Fernando and Antelope Valley communities. The conference is designed for practical education and will provide opportunities for dialogue with guest speakers, business professionals and community leaders who will share their experience and expertise.
Dena Maloney, Dean of Economic Development at College of the Canyons, provides evidence for the increasing leadership of women, "Today, one in every eleven adult women in the US owns a business and female entrepreneurship has been growing at twice the national average since 1977," she said. "The Women's Leadership Conference will reflect the increasing leadership role for women in the workplace, in their own businesses and in the community."
According to Agnes Eguaras, Project Manager at College of the Canyons, sponsors and exhibitors will reap a number of benefits by attending and supporting the conference, "Sponsors and exhibitors of the Women's Leadership Conference will be given wide opportunities to market and brand their businesses to professionals, community members and attendees," she said. "There will be a lot of networking and business development opportunities at the conference. Sponsors and exhibitors can publicly support the community growth and development of our region, and be a vital part of the advancement of female leaders and professionals in LA County and surrounding areas."
