Women's Leadership and Empowerment Conference 2009 is a three-day program, which consists of three components: study session "women's leadership and empowerment of disadvantaged groups", presentations of submitted papers and open discussions. It is open to all of those interested in gaining leadership skills and new knowledge as well as those who want to share their own achievements since the Conference is designed as a special training program for future leaders in different fields. The minimum requirement is that participants have taken at least one year of graduate university courses. Undergraduate students may be reviewed and accepted under special conditions and based on their academic background, CV and past achievements.
WLC 2009 provides a comprehensive and interactive program in which participants cultivate their cross-cultural, leadership and communication skills and learn about innovation, its importance and ways how to create and implement it.
This program provides the participants with an analysis of leadership, its styles and impact worldwide. Each participant should be able to understand how different cultures, educational systems, political, social and economical environments influence leadership styles. Participants will learn how to motivate and lead people coming from different cultures. You cannot use the same leadership style in every culture and you can definitely not motivate all the people in the same way. Different things motivate different people and move them up into the action. This knowledge paired with the participants' improved communication skills and leadership skills can be a powerful tool to inflict change in their own communities and organizations as a step towards creating good and responsible young professionals and future leaders.
Overall, the program will benefit four different groups of people: graduate students, scholars, company representatives and community members. Graduate students will learn and grow from the new roles they are allowed to take on. Scholars will be exchanging their ideas, learn about some new approaches in this field and pass on their knowledge on to the other participants in order to help creating future leaders but at the same time to improve their own knowledge, leadership and communication skills. Company representatives will gain some practical skills, learn more about leadership and motivation, meet their colleagues from around the world, establish new contacts and most importantly have a chance to get some new ideas that will bring back to their companies and communities. Community members will benefit from the knowledge and resources that the participants bring back to their communities. The benefits of this program will continue to affect all persons involved for years to come.
This project is designed to have lasting effects on the lives of those who participate in the Conference, as well as members of their community. The young persons who participate will gain new knowledge, skills, and resources, which will enable them to improve their relative social, economic, and political positions throughout their lives. These skills and knowledge serve as a foundation for young persons to continue to improve their human capital on an ongoing basis. In turn, these students will become future leaders in different fields- journalism, business, political, and community realmsâ€”sharing their knowledge and experience with others and creating positive impacts in the community.
