Speakers include Anne Doyle, author of Powering Up: Making the Leap to Leadership; Colonel Lillian Anita Dixon, who will speak on Building Lasting Relationships, On the Front Lines of Empowerment in the Middle East; and Alan Tratner, founder of Green2Gold International Incubators and Workshops, who will discuss Women Helping the World.
