What our attendees said last year:
"What an inspiring group of leaders! I loved hearing their individual stories and how they continue to work to lift other women up into leadership."
"The best Women’s Conference I’ve ever attended! If you are looking to be inspired through encouragement, fun and truth, this is the event for you.”
Founders Dr. Melissa Sadorf and County School Superintendent Jill Broussard are committed to developing women leaders in Arizona. The Lead WEL Summit is their way of supporting the growth of all women in leadership roles or those that aspire to leadership. Lead WEL is an opportunity to move the needle for women in educational leadership through professional development, career development, goal setting and support. They both believe that all organizations are strengthened when leaders value both diversity and equity. Lead WEL is an event designed by women for women and is an avenue for women to find their authentic voice in the realm of leadership and ultimately realize their unique version of success. They welcome your involvement and your participation in these efforts!
