Dena Maloney, dean of economic development at College of the Canyons, cites evidence for the increasing leadership of women. “Today, one in every 11 adult women in the U.S. owns a business and female entrepreneurship has been growing at twice the national average since 1977,” she said. “The Women’s Leadership Conference will reflect the increasing leadership role for women in the workplace, in their own businesses and in the community.” Sponsors and exhibitors will reap a number of benefits by attending and supporting the conference. “Sponsors and exhibitors of the Women’s Leadership Conference will be given wide opportunities to market and brand their businesses to professionals, community members and attendees,” said Agnes Eguaras, project manager at the college. “There will be a lot of networking and business development opportunities at the conference. Sponsors and exhibitors can publicly support the community growth and development of our region, and be a vital part of the advancement of female leaders and professionals in Los Angeles County and surrounding areas.” VALENCIA_Those looking for ways to foster leadership and make a positive difference in the lives of women in the community are invited to become sponsors or exhibitors at a conference scheduled for April at College of the Canyons.
