The goal of this conference is to inspire women students with demonstrated leadership qualities to further develop their skills and realize their potential as leaders.

The conference theme is Celebrating 100 Years of Suffrage and Strategizing Next Steps for Forward Momentum and will replicate the proven format, introducing participants to a comprehensive program of speakers and panels, presentations by legislators and representatives of prominent women’s organizations. Every year the program agenda is a wonderful mix of illustrious presenters, elected officials, top level CUNY administrators, and representatives of key women’s and community and public affairs organizations. This year’s morning plenary session will feature New York State Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hiochul, Chairperson of the New York State Women’s Suffrage Commission and Melissa De Rosa, Secretary and Top Aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo.
