The annual statewide conference, Young Women Strong Leaders, is scheduled to take place Friday, March 30 at Davenport University. This will be the first time the forum, which encourages high school and college girls to be the best they can be, is held in Grand Rapids.
It’s a day of network building, mentorship and leadership role modeling from across Michigan -- and it's open to the public. It’s also an opportunity to build a relationship with a professional in a particular field of study. Presenters include Rachel Mraz, Bridget Clark Whitney and Jennifer Phillips Wilson.
The keynote speaker for this year’s event is Dr. Eileen Wilson-Oyelaran, the 17th President of Kalamazoo College. She brings her work record of distinction in the realm of higher education and early child development, both in this country and abroad, to the stage to inspire and motivate.
The conference is presented by the Michigan ACE Women’s Network, Michigan Women’s Commission, Michigan State University Women’s Resource Center, Michigan Department of Education and Davenport University.
