Seize Your Opportunity - Leadership Symposium

  • May 08, 2019
  • 7:30 AM
  • The Biltmore Hotel 506 S. Grand Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90071


Pre-Registration Closed.  Onsite Registration Available

SEIZE YOUR OPPORTUNITY Leadership Symposium builds off the momentum of last year’s Stand Out from the Crowd Symposium to bring together our future and current leaders for an intensive daylong Symposium. Presented by the Women in Structural Engineering Committee, this is a “cannot miss” opportunity for everyone independent of your experience, gender, race, or sexuality to elevate your skills and your awareness of critical issues facing women and everyone else. With a day of discussion, mentoring, and soft skills training, together we can take a big step forward towards overcoming the challenges in our industry and set the foundation for a more diverse and successful future.

Symposium Goals:

  • Empower women and everyone else to elevate their profile in the industry.
  • Explore new skill paths to leadership.
  • Create a learning environment that supports the needs of multiple career stages in one event.
  • Learn new tools, techniques, and strategies to become a more successful leader.
  • Provide a space for all to learn from one another.

Join us for this special day that literally could change your life.
