The Women’s Conference: Architects of Change
Building a New World For Women
You have to hand it to Maria Shriver. The First Lady of California pulled off this earnest star-studded “hurrah,” bringing together Liberian peace activists with the likes of Warren Buffett and over 14,000 women (and 1 millionmore via web) to celebrate women as agents of change. Shriver took over organizing the non-partisan and nonprofit event five years ago, tied it into her WeEmpower brand, and has since brought on big sponsors, big names, and a bigger spirit of solidarity and giving back. If ticket sales are any indication, plan to get in line early for next year—they sold out within three hours.
The next conference will be held in October 2009. Learn more at californiawomen.org.
