2010 Women and Leadership Luncheon Event

In 2010 three ILA members-Susan R. Madsen, Karen Longman, and Kathi Tunheim-organized a "Women in Leadership Network Luncheon" that was held successfully at ILA's annual conference in Boston. Approximately 110 individuals joined us for this event. Attendees sat at tables with others who were passionate about their specific areas of interest for engaging lunchtime conversation. The table topic choices were chosen and emailed to attendees prior to the event and included:

Sponsors for this luncheon included:

  1. The Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company, OD and Learning Division,
  2. Utah Valley University,
  3. Azusa Pacific University,
  4. Gustavus Adolphus College, and
  5. Global Institute for Leadership and Civic Development, Inc.

At the conclusion of the luncheon, each table provided feedback on how they would like to see a more formal networking effort continued. The creation of an affinity group was at the top of the list. The establishment of the Women and Leadership Affinity Group in 2011 in time for the 2011 October ILA Conference in London, as well as a continuation of the Women and Leadership Luncheon tradition at the 2011 Conference fulfilled that request!
