Professional Development Conference

We are working on planning our 2024 Professional Development Conference.  This year's theme is: Making HERstory, Breaking Boundaries, Building Bridges to emphasize breaking through barriers and forging connections to create a more inclusive and collaborative business environment by encouraging women to expand their horizons and provide support for one another.

We are looking for presenters comfortable speaking to and engaging with a large virtual audience including ICSEW members, prospective members, and allies of ICSEW.   ICSEW is made up of state and higher education employees of all ages, races, genders, abilities, and backgrounds. Our meetings are open to anyone regardless of gender or employment status, so we do occasionally have attendees who are internal/external partners. We are particularly hoping for speakers who have lived experience and passion on these topics especially in relation to women.
