Women’s Industry Network (WIN®) Conference Committee announced that this year’s Conference attendees will “Power Up” to be the best they can be. This year’s event is scheduled for May 5-7, 2014 at the Paradise Point Resort & Spa in San Diego, CA.
The Conference will kick off with featured keynote speaker Dr. Verna Cornelia Price, who will present The Power of You! a message of personal and professional understanding and empowerment. Colette Carlson, next up, will share her engaging message, The Hard, Cold Truth – Working Hard Isn’t Working. The program also features Bridging the Generational Gap, The Increasingly Interconnected APD Ecosystem, and Keys to Success. Additional workshop sessions over the non-stop two and a half day Conference include The Green Revolution, Mastering the Muck of Your Technology, and Truth About Negotiation: A$K and You Shall Succeed.
The Scholarship Walk, an annual tradition at the conference, will afford attendees a health break while supporting WIN’s Scholarship Program. Additional special events include a Welcome Luau Dinner on the beach and the WIN Gala Dinner & MIW Ceremony. This is the inaugural year of WIN’s presentation of the Most Influential Women awards. The gala dinner will recognize women who have been nominated by their peers as outstanding business and civic leaders. 2014 will also usher in a new era of scholarships for WIN. For the first time, WIN will award tuition scholarships to applicants from both secondary and post-secondary schools as the winners pursue their education in technical colleges across the country. Some of those winners will be in attendance at the conference.
Paradise Point was named “Best Hotel Space” by the Professional Convention Management Association and is known for its efforts to promote sustainable practices throughout their facility. The hotel routinely follows an exhaustive list of practices that foster sustainability including water, fuel and electricity conservation, advanced recycling and repurposing, and paper-less communication throughout their facility. In addition to programming focused on sustainability, WIN has focused their efforts for this Conference on reducing their carbon footprint to foster a more sustainable future by reducing printed materials (invitations, brochures and program materials), shifting in-session practices to reduce waste, and shifting resources from purchasing “giveaways” to the scholarship fund.
Registration for the Conference will open soon. For the latest updates from WIN and the Conference Committee, go to http://thewomensindustrynetwork.ning.com/page/2014-conference .
