Conference

2016 Agenda

ICAN’s annual Women’s Leadership Conference – held for over 20 years in Omaha, Nebraska – is known to be powerful, insightful and authentic, representative of the leadership trends and transformations present in today’s workplace.
Join us on April 6, 2016 to make SHIFT happen. Our theme is TRANSFORMATION – how women in the United States have transformed the workplace, and the impact this transformation has had in business, philanthropy, and education. We will also offer insight into how women can CAPITALIZE on these transformations and are poised to make even greater transformations in the future.
