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:
