Soledad O'Brien Keynotes Spelman Conference

ATLANTA -  In today’s society and challenging economy, women are busier than ever juggling the roles of breadwinner, emerging professional, community leader, wife and mother. It’s time to stop, reassess and put ourselves first in order to maximize what we do for others. It’s time to reset.

Identifying strategies to help 21st century women leaders reset and sustain is more important than ever. The seventh annual Spelman College Leadership and Women of Color Conference will address these issues and others during, “Reset: Sustaining Women for 21st Century Leadership.” Conference attendees and key experts will discuss:

  • Professional and personal sustainability issues, challenges and opportunities. Is personal sustainability achievable for 21st century leaders?
  • What are the critical leadership skills necessary to achieve personal and professional sustainability?
  • How do women create roadmaps to successfully sustain strong families, friendships and communities?

The two-day Conference is a must-attend event for men and women in both the corporate and private sectors seeking professional and personal developmental opportunities to enhance essential leadership skills.


Keynote Speaker: Soledad O’Brien, award-winning anchor and author, CNN

  • Legacy of Leadership Award Honorees – Female Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan Wars
  • Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, president, Spelman College
  • Dr. Jane Smith, executive director, Spelman College Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement (LEADS)
