One of several events celebrating National Women's History Month at Pepperdine University, Women in Leadership in Higher Education was presented by the Pepperdine Center for Women in Leadership in partnership with Human Resources. Participants learned from top women leaders in the field of higher education and received encouragement, direction, support, and education related to advancing careers, personal influence, professionalism, discernment of vocational calling, and leadership gravitas.

In alignment with the mission of the Pepperdine Center for Women in Leadership, the goal of this conference was to contribute to a sense of preparedness for professional advancement, influence and impact, for women of all ages and at all stages in their professional career.
