Description

Welcome! Kristin Chenoweth’s song “I was here” speaks volumes when it comes to our theme for the 2016 Women’s Summit – Make Your Mark! The words struck a chord with me, especially, “You will notice me. I’ll be leaving my mark like initials carved in an old oak tree. Just wait and see. I want to do something that matters, say something different, something that sets the whole world on its ear.”

Last year, our opening keynote speaker, Sallie Krawcheck, told us that women want to engage in work that allows them to find meaning and purpose in their professional lives. They are more likely to seek employment from a company if the work is meaningful and gives them a purpose for going to work every day, she noted.

I find meaning and purpose in my work at Bryant University, which includes creating the Women’s Summit for the past 19 years. I believe in the Women’s Summit mission: to empower those who attend to be professionally, personally, and financially successful.

The Women’s Summit Committee works hard to present nationally recognized keynote speakers and breakout sessions that are led by experts in their fields, enabling attendees to experience renewed enthusiasm and confidence that can inspire them at work and at home.

The contributions you make to your profession, your family, and your community have great value. If you can help just one person, then you have made a difference in his or her life. Our goal is to provide encouragement and educationally enriching programs that motivate you to continue to succeed. Attending the conference also allows you to focus on your health and well-being by providing you with a day to step back, review your current situation, and set goals.

In his book, The Road to Character, David Brooks writes: “When we think about making a difference or leading a life with purpose, we often think of achieving something external: performing some service that will have an impact on the world, creating a successful company, or doing something to benefit the community. These are not the only parameters that measure our success. We also have internal moral qualities of humility and learning that require us to confront our weaknesses,” according to Brooks. It is the combination of these qualities, plus being mindful about our health and well-being, which will help us all to make our mark!

At this time I would like to thank the Women’s Summit Co-chairs and Women’s Summit Committee, as well as everyone at Bryant University who devote so much time and energy to the creation of another successful conference.

The Women’s Summit would not be possible without the help of our generous sponsors who enable us to continue this educationally enriching conference each year. We appreciate their contributions and support in advancing women through their sponsorship.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
