Recently, I joined 5000+ women at the 25th Annual Professional Business Women of California Conference. The event was truly awe-inspiring; you can’t get that many women together and not feel the energy in a room. The keynote speakers were exceptional — ranging from veteran Madison Avenue legend Charlotte Beers andNational Geographic explorer Dr. Elizabeth Lindsey to Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Arianna Huffington and Diane Keaton. There were also numerous concurrent sessions and it was wonderful to see Mark Gerzon fearlessly leading a session on global citizenship — an area I too am deeply passionate about. Got to love any man willing to show up and speak up at a women’s conference.
