“Some women fear the fire. Some women simply become it…”
The National Diversity Council is Blazing Trails with the annual Women in Leadership Symposiums (WILS) commencing this March! This year we are kicking off the WILS World Tour in over 28 cities in the US and in countries such as Mexico, England, Chile and Argentina.
The Women in Leadership Symposiums bring together a diverse mix of successful women leaders who, through the discussion of topics relevant to today’s issues, educate, inspire and encourage women to reflect on their own goals and status as they strive to move higher in their organizations. This year’s WILS World Tour will kick off in Houston, Texas on March 1st. To attend the WILS nearest to you, be sure and visit our site wilsymposium.com.
