ASCEND Northern California, in cooperation with chapters in Los Angeles and Seattle, presents its 4th annual leadership conference and gala, “Inspiring Across Generations.”

The 2010 conference theme is “Reinventing for the Long Term.” The business world is undergoing rapid change, propelling and disrupting new careers and industries. How do you stay relevant and flexible? What skills enable you to anticipate risk, uncertainty, and change? Who can help guide your transformation? A top-tier panel of speakers and mentors will share tactics and strategies on how to successfully navigate these turbulent times and build lasting relationships.

The conference consists of a day-and-a-half of leadership and mentorship workshops with panel discussions, mentorship circles, keynote speeches, and networking. We include opportunities for both emerging and seasoned leaders to engage with our community partners and corporate sponsors and to meet our members and conference attendees. The conference ends with a gala dinner and entertainment. We expect another sell-out with 600 attendees. Workshops and panels have limited space, so register early! Price increases May 4, 2010.
