Hey faithful readers! It’s Danielle again, here to tell you about my latest venture in the culture of the Rogue Valley. As I’ve said before, I’m not super artistic, and I’ve never really been very involved in the art world. Business is my comfort zone, and its one of the things that I love to talk about, so I figured I’d share that with all of you! In all of my writing I have the tendency to ramble so I’ll try to keep it short and sweet for you. 🙂
This week, my cultural experience took me to the Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC). This last Friday, 400 women descended on the Ashland Hills Hotel to celebrate women in business, network, and listen to amazing speakers and I was lucky enough to be one of them.
The day began at 8 am and lasted until 6 pm. It was everything I had imagined it would be and SO MUCH MORE! I saw two keynote speakers, 4 breakout session speakers, met amazing women, ate delicious food, and had a great time!
In the short time that I was there I learned so much, and I was deeply inspired. I am about to graduate from SOU and with that comes the terrifying leap into “the real world”. I am extremely excited for this next chapter, but I am also extremely nervous. However, meeting all of these successful and amazing women eased my stress. At one time, they were all exactly where I was, and they used their passion, and determination to succeed. This was exactly the boost I needed in order to finish out the rest of my college experience and take the leap into my career.
Yeah, yeah you say, what does this have to do with art and culture Danielle? Calling business art may be a stretch, but business, and especially this conference are definitely parts of the Rogue Valley culture. I would encourage everyone, business student or not, woman or man, to attend this conference next year and open yourselves up to a career altering experience.
