WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP RETREAT
The Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) will host its Sixth Annual Women in
Leadership Retreat on January 6-8, 2003 in San Diego, California. This years conference,
entitled "Visionary Leadership: A Woman's Perspective," springs from
a concern that "many of our profession's finest female leaders will be retiring
in the next three to five year's." The topics to be addressed in the retreat
include: "Partners in Leadership: A Peer Mentoring Opportunity, Take Charge
of Your Career: Strategies that Support Women in the Workplace, Building Strengths
from the Inside Out, and Orienteering: Finding the Path to Leadership.
