JLA Women’s Leadership Forum

Join us for the  4th Annual Women’s Leadership Forum presented by The Junior League of Atlanta, Inc. to be held Tuesday, March 6 at the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart. For the first time, the event will be a full-day of both professional and personal development, aimed at inspiring women to develop their potential to improve the community through voluntarism, effective action and leadership.

This year’s theme, The Power of a Woman’s Voice will inspire attendees to use their knowledge, instincts and passion to speak up for the things that matter most in their lives, from the boardroom to their community. Breakout sessions will include corporate and nonprofit leaders from various industries discussing subjects on themes including: Women Who Broke The Mold, Women Who Find Balance, Women Who Make Connections and Women Who Transform.

Veronika Scott, Founder and CEO of The Empowerment Plan, will serve as the luncheon keynote speaker.  Scott has transformed countless lives through her empowering social entrepreneurship. The Empowerment Plan creates self-heated and waterproof coats that double as a sleeping bag at night. The Empowerment Plan also provides economic empowerment to people experiencing homelessness by hiring homeless women to produce coats for people living on the streets, which provides the opportunity to gain back independence for themselves and their families.

Individual tickets are $100, and tables of 10 are $1,000. To learn more about sponsoring this event, email Corporate Giving Chair Emilie Hill at corporategiving@jlatlanta.org.
