Salem College will again welcome Triad-area college students to its campus for an event that provides opportunities to learn and practice many of the skills critical to building a successful career in today’s highly competitive and ever-changing marketplace. This one-day conference aims to foster relationships among Salem College, the Center for Women in Business, local female professionals and students from area academic institutions. 

The evening keynote event is open to the community and dedicated to the theme “Lean In,” based on the New York Times bestseller by Sheryl Sandberg. It will feature a panel of Women CEOs from around the country and from varying professional disciplines in for- and not-for profit organizations. As members of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) these women are dedicated to continuing the international conversation started by Sandberg in her book and website, Through telling their stories, they aim to give young women ongoing inspiration and support to lean into their careers, pursue their ambitions and achieve their goals.
