The 2012 WILL Conference and Women's Expo Set for Feb. 28

Ferris State UniversityThe 10th annual Women Investing in Leadership and Learning Conference, hosted by Student Government, will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 28 beginning at 11 a.m. in Ferris State University’s Rankin Student Center Dome Room.

The WILL Conference began a decade ago with a mission to showcase successful women in leadership positions. The conference strives to give young, professional, college women of all backgrounds inspiration to set goals and reach them regardless of life’s obstacles.

This year’s theme is “Be Beautiful, Be You.” The goal is to focus on the inner and outer beauty of women. “Be Beautiful, Be You,” was picked to express to women that inner beauty will help women reach their full potential with a reminder that outer beauty will help women to be confident in all that they do.

The morning of the conference will be devoted to Ferris’ first women’s expo. The expo, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Dome Room, will focus on outer beauty and feature local businesses and organizations.

The conference’s evening program focuses on inner beauty as guest speaker Sherene McHenry, a human relations expert, will work to inspire women to strive for more and never settle for less. The speaker series takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. in College of Business Room 111.
