Lead Your Way Conference

Have you heard about Lead Your Way, a leadership conference we’re hosting at Simmons College on January 31? We are super excited about this day packed with a lot of fun and opportunity to learn. Our keynote speaker is Jasmina Aganovic, a graduate of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a cosmetics and consumer goods entrepreneur.
We are also excited to see Casey McQuillen, a singer/songwriter from eastern Massachusetts, perform music from her “You Matter” tour—we’re also excited to hear about her experience on American Idol!
A lunchtime panel discussion will feature successful female role models talking about how they break gender stereotypes every day in their work. This theme of female empowerment is also carried over in the many workshops offered throughout the day on topics including financial literacy, goal setting and preparing for college. We didn’t want to leave the adults out of this great learning opportunity and will be offering development workshops for them, as well!
