International Women's Leadership Conference Set to Inspire

Bringing together women leaders from nations around the world for the sixth year in a row, Governor Lingle's International Women's Leadership Conference is a chance for Hawai`i's women to rejuvenate themselves and come away inspired.   Eight keynote speakers from eight nations around the world will share their incredible stories of success and inspire attendees.

Speakers include:

Cathrine Ann, president of the Canada-based Consumer Connection Inc., a multi-million dollar business that specializes in customer service evaluations and analysis. A difficult upbringing and a series of bad decisions led her through many dark places before she was finally able to arrive at success. Ann has earned multiple awards for her entrepreneurial spirit and she now lives in a comfortable home a world away from the streets where she once slept.

Amanda Ellis, lead specialist of gender and development for the World Bank Group. Ellis spearheads a global research program to document the ease of doing business for women in 180 countries.
