Fourth Annual Women’s Global Leadership Conference: Visibility, Social Mobility, Success

October 18 at 9:00 am 4:00 pm

141 E. College Ave
Decatur, Georgia 30030 United States

The pandemic both ignited economic, political and social challenges and highlighted inequities that have long blocked the way to social mobility for millions in the U.S. and across the world. We hear about the lack of access to well-paying jobs, affordable housing, good schools, and healthcare every day but rarely meet these systemic issues with meaningful solutions.

Agnes Scott College will help close the gap. Join for “Visibility, Social Mobility, Success” and convene with leading business and educational minds to discuss the following topics:

  • Recognizing and rectifying the histories of erasure, disenfranchisement and invisibility of BIPOC and migrant workers around the world.
  • Collaborating with philanthropic, public, and private organizations dedicated to enhancing social mobility and working towards a more just world through politics, education, and environment.
  • Building resilient communities that enable all members to create successful lives based on inclusive and vibrant work environments, access to excellent education and equitable healthcare.

Agnes Scott College has long been recognized as a driver of social mobility. They are proud to continue this legacy by hosting the fourth annual Women’s Global Leadership Conference. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 18, 2023 and explore the  WGLC website for details on registration, Agnes Scott’s Inclusive Leadership Certificate program, and other opportunities to partner with Agnes Scott.

  • Business leaders, government officials, and policy makers interested in supporting social mobility and economic success.
  • Community leaders and nonprofit organizations working to correct historical inequities and to create opportunities for underrepresented groups.
  • Researchers and academics studying solutions to economic and social inequalities.
  • Employers reimagining the talent pipeline of diverse change-makers across industries.
  • Students and recent graduates interested in learning about strategies for success and navigating the job market.
