Event description


The Women in Power (WIP) program aims to create opportunities for candid discussion regarding issues that women leaders face and to explore strategies for overcoming them. The WIP annual conference and networking programs help foster a community built on leadership, inspiration, and mentorship, empowering women to achieve their full leadership potential.

The program also serves as a recruitment tool to be able to ensure we are engaging with women of all different industries and ensuring that they are encouraged to apply and go through our other pipeline building and leadership development programming efforts such as the Leadership Academy and the Leadership Institute.

Moderated by Vivian Long, Director of Programs of Long Family Foundation

How do we create environments where women are not only supported, but elevated? Where women are treated and compensated equitably, work and family co-exist, and all workers are valued. What types of policies and practices will we need to shift the culture within a workplace? How does a company ensure that they are aligned in their internal policies? Hear from top executives, leaders and commissioners from WMN Legal, Commission on the Status of Women and Girls and LAHSA, for a discussion to develop and implement workplace policies and practices that center around and benefit all women.


Facilitated by Emilie Aries, Founder & CEO of Bossed Up

The stories that we tell have the power to shape our world, and in today’s day and age, we now have access to endless content at the touch of our hands. How do we cultivate and seize this tremendous opportunity to use the art of storytelling? How do we take our own personal experiences and share them in a way that inspires action and change to help lead our communities? We need to motivate others into action through our narratives. Storytelling is an essential skill for leaders of all ages to convey to connect with those around us. If you are interested in becoming the best version of yourself, be it in your community or organization, this session will help you turn your vision into a movement.


Facilitated by Alison De La Cruz, Vice President of Programs at Japanese American Cultural and Community Center

Because diversity of thought and perspective continue to be an asset, how do you create a space that encourages your team to openly communicate with each other? In this breakout session, participants will identify their own multiplicity, practice reflective listening skills which are key to strengthening group dynamics, and identify best practices for creating inclusive spaces.
