The third annual academic conference, Women in Leadership: Work-Life Balance, will take place Thursday to Friday, Mar. 19 to 20, at the Omni Hotel in Los Angeles, Calif. This event is now closed.

The conference engages scholars and business professionals from all sectors to share their wisdom that will impact the future for themselves and the next generation of women and men. Through connecting around the life course method of identity; motivation and drive; relational style; and adaptive style, participants share research that enhances opportunities for women to live meaningful lives of purpose and leadership.

The focus of each plenary and breakout session this year will be mentoring and sponsorship. Through connecting around the life course method of identity, which include: motivation and drive; relational style; and adaptive style, participants share research that enhances opportunities for women to live meaningful lives of purpose and leadership.

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in dialogue with researchers and experts in professional growth, coaching, effective mentoring, and creating developmental networks. The two-day conference will take a research-based look at the unique challenges that women face in their work and life and how their networks can enhance those experiences.

The academic conference is part of Women in Leadership; Work-Life Balance, an initiative of the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) led by Emeritus Dean Margaret J. Weber. The mission of the initiative is to explore the work-life balance issues of women from global perspectives. The movement aims to accomplish this through its three components: research; a digital library/website; and an annual academic conference.
