The 2020 ILA Women and Leadership Conference Committee is proud to announce the 11th conference scheduled from 2-4 December 2020 in Calgary, Canada. The conference theme is Leading Differently: Capacity Building, Knowledge Sharing, and Intergenerational Networking.
Previous conferences brought together participants who lead as educators, students, researchers, coaches, business owners, managers, and elected officials to discuss leadership together. The 2020 conference seeks to build on this collaborative approach and increase the ability and success of women to lead differently by building women’s leadership capacity, sharing knowledge about successful leadership strategies, and networking with women at various stages of their professional development.
It is fitting that the 2020 Women and Leadership conference is being held in Canada. The convention is widely lauded as having launched the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. In 2020, the U.S. will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the U.S. Congressional ratification of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote. The celebration provides a fitting backdrop for people to gather from around the world to share and learn strategies that ensure our communities create space for women to engage and lead.
At the 11th Women and Leadership conference you will become better equipped to lead differently by fine tuning your vision and skills. You will have the opportunity to build your leadership capacity by learning about creative solutions and honing your practice through interactive workshops and presentations.
- The Proceeding will be archived in Digital Library.
- Each Paper will be assigned Digital Object Identifier (DOI) from CROSSREF.
- The Proceeding will be submitted to ISI Thomson for review and indexing.
- The Proceedings will be published in International Journals with ISSN Numbers.
