Women and Leadership: Pursuing Purpose

and Balance in Today’s World

What does it mean to be a leader? What does it mean to be purpose driven? In this time in history, how can women use their influence to lead positive change? How can women, empowered by an understanding of their life purpose and destiny, boldly step forward to be all that they can be? What kind of courage and faith is needed in these unprecedented times, especially when so much is being asked of women and girls, and so much is wanted and needed by them? How can we meet the challenge while not sacrificing self-care?

The Conference Presentations 

~ Day One ~

  • Michelle Olivia Smith - Finding Your Purpose in Life and Business

    Clarity of purpose is essential for leaders in both life and business. Achieving any goal starts with defining that goal. Walk with me in this opening session as we craft a personal I AM statement, and define the mission, vision and personal values for our lives. If you are starting or have a business, we will define this for the business as well.

  • Lucy Zielinski - Effective Leadership: Starts With You!

    Effective leaders are crucial to advance an organization’s strategy and objectives. And the foundation of effective leadership begins with a keen sense of self-awareness and committing to lifelong learning and skill building. It starts with you!


    After the session, attendees will be able to:

    ·        List key competencies of highly effective leaders

    ·        Differentiate between managing and leading others

    ·        Create an individualized plan to develop and enhance their leadership skills

  • Nancy Batterman - Pursuing Your Purpose Despite The Challenges

    After working as a nonprofit CEO for 30 years, I took God’s lead and started my own executive coaching business in the fall of 2019. Then the pandemic hit and I was diagnosed with breast cancer. This presentation will discuss the challenges I faced, what I learned and God’s faithfulness as I continued to pursue my purpose.

  • Anna Dynia - Rise Up: Financial Awareness and Abundance

    We all have our stories around money, there is a lot of information out there and it is sometimes easier to ignore our responsibility. This can stop us from fulfilling our purpose and passion and taking that action we know we need to take. When we do not have the awareness of our finances it is difficult to receive the abundance in our lives. This is a call to rise up and look at the area of money in your business and in your personal life to set yourself up for success.

  • Vivian Williams - Protecting your Purpose: The Basics Of Intellectual Property

    Want to secure your brand? Want your business to be more profitable? Then learn how to protect your purpose in this informative session about patents, trademarks, and other ways to secure your intellectual property.


    Attendees will learn:

    ·        The basics around Trademarks, Copyrights, Patents, and Trade Secrets.

    ·        Why every business has Intellectual Property!

    ·        How to use these important protections in your business!

  • Day Two ~


    • Michelle Olivia Smith - Infusing Life Purpose to Increase Job Satisfaction 

      One of the key business questions employers ask is, "How do I increase employee engagement?" The answer does not come from management, it comes from employees themselves. From the point of view of the career woman, this presentation will discuss how you can proactively infuse your current job with your life purpose, and thereby increase your own job satisfaction. If you want to stay with your employer, but you long for better opportunities, this presentation will show you a win-win so you can have your cake and eat it too.

    • Nichole Henderson - Maintaining Balance While Pursuing Your Purpose

      Is work life balance overrated?

      Mental balance, implementing the eight dimensions of wellness, and practicing intentional self-care are important ingredients needed to infuse your faith and sustain balance while pursuing purposefulness. All three components can protect pioneering women from the persistence trap of impostor syndrome and disparaging mental health myths that prevent ambitious woman from obtaining a purpose driven lifestyle.

      This session will help you understand how sparking your creativity through discovering your spiritual gifts, learning that self-care is not selfish, implementing and maintaining purposeful relationships, thriving careers, and most importantly, your identity in Christ, can help you maintain balance and pursue your purpose.

      "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

    • Genein Letford - Intercultural Creativity for Women in Leadership: The Ace Up Your Sleeve for the Future of Work

      Creative thinking is now the #1 skill needed in our workforce. This is a VUCA environment. So, increasing your creative thinking skills is no longer a luxury, it’s now required. But creativity can’t thrive unless there is a culture of inclusion, belonging and psychological safety. This interactive session combines intercultural development, which is a key tool needed for inclusion, with a methodology that cultivates and expands creative thinking. We show you how to integrate this into your culture. Attendees will learn how:

      ·        culture and creativity are connected

      ·        to analyze their own cultural behaviors and become aware and beneficially responsive to others

      ·        to creatively engage with other cultures in business - virtual and in person

      ·        to advance their intercultural competence for success in a global market

    • Teresa Mosley - Health and Wellness for the Purpose Driven Woman


      Understanding your purpose is the beginning of the journey to your goals, but anyone who takes a journey knows that it also requires physical endurance. Because the mind drives the body, you must also fuel mental wellness to sustain you and carry you to your expected outcome and beyond. Follow me as we discuss what it will take to sustain and maintain both the mind and the body in wellness as you fulfill your purpose.
