Announcing the 4th Annual Power and Possibilities Conference!

I was delighted to attend the 2010 Power and Possibilities Leadership Conference at St. Catherine University last year and shared the nuggets I walked away with in a blog post focused on "balancing all of our selves". In its fourth year, Power and Possibilities, a leadership conference for influential women and women of color, promises to be better than ever. The event will feature the superintendents of the Minneapolis Public Schools and the St. Paul Public Schools, Bernadeia Johnson and Valeria Silva, respectively, in a panel conversation moderated by Dr. Verna Cornelia Price. Read on for the event schedule and how to find yourself in the midst of amazing women leaders and energizing self-reflection and conversation on April 13!
