Women today face a unique set of challenges that include balancing a career, running a home, raising children, and caring for aging parents. Competing priorities pull them in every imaginable direction.
There is strength in numbers, however, and the SheUnited Conference 2013 will bring together women from all ages and backgrounds to share their collective wisdom and experience.
The celebration of women from the Saint Joseph’s University community and beyond will be held Saturday, March 23 at the Michael J. Hagan ’85 Arena. The daylong conference kicks off with a dual keynote address from accomplished business, government and civic leader Rosemarie Greco ’75, and Mary Lou Quinlan ’75 (above, left to right), author, entrepreneur and television personality.
Following the keynote, attendees can learn from internationally recognized experts, educators and accomplished female authors on five conference tracks: “Live Healthier,” “Network it, Girl,” “Renew Your Spirit,” “Embrace Milestones,” and “Simplify Your Life.”
In addition to the 11 speaker presentations held during two afternoon sessions, the conference will host a health and wellness corner with presentations and information booths, a career corner with a mentor meet up and resume review, student presentations, and an author corner, where women can have books signed by published speakers.
