It’s not often you get to spend a day with 1,000 women in the same room. It’s especially not often you get to spend a day with 1,000 driven, career-focused INSPIRING women in the same room! This was the case for me during last week’s 2015 Indiana Conference for Women.

I attended #ICW15 representing Weaving Influence as a Social Media Ambassador — sounds fancy, right? As a Social Media Ambassador, I was assigned to live tweet and promote conversation during keynotes and breakout sessions featuring iconic women in the industry. All while hash-tagging #ICW15.

The energy during #ICW15 was empowering and radiated a sense of camaraderie among attendees and speakers alike. Women across generations, at all stages in their careers, could be found sharing stories and dancing to the Beyoncé songs played over the loudspeakers. The girl power was exuberant.

The thought-provoking sessions were the highlight of the conference. Business leaders such as Kathy Ireland and Sallie Krawcheck shared stories of failure, success, and strategy that left the audience inspired. Authors and thought leaders taught valuable skills anywhere from mastering the “Politics of Promotion” with Bonnie Marcus, to Jennifer Kahnweiler’s enlightening advice on developing successful introvert/extrovert partnerships.

Everyone could take something away from the #ICW15, and I highly recommend attending next year’s event.
