Women’s Leadership Summit – Own the Journey: Engage, Influence, Thrive!

Santa Cruz Chamber of Commerce – Women’s Leadership Summit is back!
Thursday, October 5, 2023 12:00 Noon – 4:30 PM
Chaminade Resort & Spa, One Chaminade Lane, Santa Cruz, CA 95065

Join us for the Santa Cruz County Chamber Women’s Leadership Summit. This is a Women in Business-themed summit with the intent to make it a premier event that brings together a network of diverse women who are breaking down barriers, making themselves visible, and manifesting their careers —while making a difference in the world. That certainly includes women who lead our local nonprofits!

The summit will be a day of listening, learning, community-building, and an opportunity to explore leadership, empowerment, and the importance of strong mentorship and allies. The theme for this summit is Own the Journey where we explore ways for you to engage, influence, and thrive. As the effects of the global pandemic linger, we need bold leadership to bring far-reaching changes and uncertainty for businesses and the workforce. From burnout, talent shortages, and mass layoffs to climate change, geopolitics, and inflation today’s leaders are facing a myriad of risks and concerns. We invite you to look at leadership differently. At the 2023 Women’s Leadership Summit we’ll explore leadership lessons from real women just like you. Through dynamic speakers, interactive activities, and networking opportunities, we’ll learn how to tap into our own leadership potential and use it to create positive change in our lives, workplaces, and beyond. Together we’ll be inspired to lead with purpose and make a difference right where we are, where we want to be, and how we own our journey.
