Conference Advocacy Committee

ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference

Fostering broad-based support for the ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference and leadership programs throughout the community.

While primarily focused on increasing awareness and momentum for the ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference each year, the Conference Advocacy Committee supports ICAN by gathering support, spurring innovation and encouraging women leaders in their respective organizations and networks. Many of our Advocacy Committee members represent organizations that partner with ICAN.
