Legacy Women Institute hosts women’s conference and expo
The Legacy Women Institute will host the Susan B. Anthony’s Legacy Women’s Conference and Expo in Rochester on Oct. 19-21, 2012. The three-day event is designed to help women ignite their passions, accelerate their dreams, and launch their legacies.
The conference, an initiative to “bring Susan B. Anthony’s spirit into action,” is being organized by Dr. Melody Cofield of the Legacy Women Institute. “Our objective is to unify and connect women to address the needs of our communities and societies. We organize dynamic experiences that provide exposure, awareness, and inspiration. We provide tools and performance that enable women to capitalize their passion and purpose for the betterment of our communities,” Scofield said in press materials.
Subtitled “Take Care of Your Legacy, It is Our Future,” the event will focus on five areas that can be challenging for women: health and well-being, money and security, entrepreneurship, corporate careers, and legacy leadership.
“Creating a legacy with intention is a lifetime of achievements,” said Dr. Cofield on the event website. She said that a more peaceful world can be achieved when women pursue a legacy for the greater good.
Essie Calhoun-McDavid, will serve as Master of Ceremonies during the conference. Speakers and presenters will include Jane Plitt, author and entrepreneur; Susan Bradley, founder of Sudden Money Institute; Deborah Hughes, Executive Director Susan B. Anthony House; Jennifer Leonard, President and CEO of Rochester Community Area Foundation; Natalie M. Cofield, President and CEO of Austin African American Chamber of Commerce; Hon. Sandra Frankel, former Town of Brighton Supervisor; Dr. Elaine Spaull, Executive Director the Center for Youth and a Rochester City Councilwoman; Fran Wiesberg, Executive Director Finger Lakes Health System Agency; and Dr. Catherine Cerulli, Director of the Susan B. Anthony Center for Women’s Leadership at the University of Rochester.
The event kicks off with a full-day tour on Friday to the places affiliated with four local historic women: Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman, and Martha Matilda Harper. On Saturday on Sunday morning there will be a variety of sessions featuring speakers and presenters.
The conference will be held at the Rochester Academy of Medicine, 1441 East Avenue.
