The theme this year is:    (Im)perfect, on purpose

The tyranny of perfection. From cradle to grave, women all over the globe internalize this unachievable notion with each country, community, religion, or social conventions putting its own special sauce into the mix. Perfect girls, perfect looks, perfect skin tone, complexion, or perfect hair. Perfect thoughts, notions, whims and desires. Oftentimes the ‘perfections’ are in direct conflict with each other: coy yet accessible, nurturing yet independent, complex but upbeat, self-assertive yet self-deprecating, direct yet yielding; modest in our intelligence and creativity. However, these imperfections or ‘deviations’ are exactly the qualities we need to move forward and do the work that is necessary for each of us to live in our purpose.

The Women's Resource Center is willing to sponosor students interested in attending the Women's Leadership Summit.  Please click here to register and have the WRC cover the cost of registration.
