The LPA's goal in this program has 3 major pillars:

  1.   Increase connectivity with women currently in LPA;
  2.   Drive engagement of women in general with LPA;
  3.   Better position LPA for future engaged women leaders

With these goals in mind, the following events and sessions have been sponsored by the LPA Women's Forum Committee:

Special thanks to the Women's Forum Committee members for supporting this important initiative within the LPA! The activity was designed to encourage participation with both men and women by requiring a signature next to a random fact that applied to a female attendee. Finding signatures led to discussions of inclusive leadership within each members’ organizations, while providing fun in the learning more about individual members.
