College of the Canyons will host a day of information, support and inspiration designed to empower attendees to successfully make important transitions in their lives, during this weekend’s COC Women’s Conference.
Sponsored by Boston Scientific, Valencia Neuromodulation, the 2012 College of the Canyons Women’s Conference will take place from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, March 17, at the Dr. Dianne G. Van Hook University Center, located on the college’s Valencia campus.
Admission to the event is $15 and includes access to the entire conference, including three morning breakout sessions of the attendee’s choice, a continental breakfast and entrance into the post-conference Resource Fair.
At the Resource Fair attendees will have additional opportunities to meet with conference presenters and network with representatives from various college departments and community organizations dedicated to helping individuals reach their career development goals.
“The challenges women face in their lives often require them to consider new paths that may take their family, career and personal life into unchartered territories,” said Deborah Rio, the college’s Dean of Enrollment Services and chair of the conference. “College of the Canyons wants to provide the women, and men, in our community with a day dedicated to overcoming those challenges and give them the resources needed to transition to new ways of thinking that will allow them to realize their potential.”
This year’s Women’s Conference will be focused around five key information strands: Business, Education, Career Exploration, Financial Planning and Women’s Health.
During the event attendees will have access to a variety of interactive breakout sessions, with each session led by a local subject expert or industry professional who will share their inspirational story of triumph and success — along with a plethora of helpful tips and information.
“This event promises to be uplifting, informative, inspirational and fun,” Rio said.
