The 2019 WILpower program is off to a fabulous start with over 250 highly engaged participants across our San Francisco, Palo Alto, Seattle, and New York locations.

We have reached capacity in San Francisco with our registered WILpower participants and the remaining women from our sponsors who have booked tickets, but are still going through the registration process. NY, Palo Alto and Seattle are still open, and taking applications!
We still have room in these three locations, but they are filling up fast.

Leadership Skill Spotlight: Projecting Credibility and Confidence
Credibility. Leadership presence. Personal power. We know these qualities when we see them, but what are the cues that lead us to these impressions?
