2017 Annual HIGHER Ground Women's Leadership Conference Proposal
Complete this form to submit a proposal for the 11th Annual HIGHER Ground Women's Leadership Conference, to be held at the Greater Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, Virginia on November 3, 2017. The theme for this year's conference is:

Challenging The Narrative: Creating Change For Ourselves And Our World

The ways in which we understand and share our narrative shapes how we engage with and impact the world. To be transformational leaders, advocates, and change agents, we must stay grounded in who we are as individuals while working to weave a collective narrative that honors the experiences of everyone. With our 2017 theme, the Annual HIGHER Ground Women’s Leadership Conference Committee hopes to inspire session facilitators to provide participants with new perspectives and skills related to the power of individual and community narrative for envisioning, forging, and sustaining social equity, individual and collective well being, and personal and professional growth.
