"Our conference will provide attendees real-world opportunities to reach career breakthroughs by developing and applying their power," says Gloria Feldt, co-founder and president of Take The Lead. "Take The Lead's mission is to achieve gender parity by 2025, and with the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote as well as Women's History Month in March, this is the perfect time to have such an event."

An information-rich conference app (https://whova.com/portal/takel_202002/?source=download_email) – now live – allows participants to network before, during, and after the conference, receive presentation documents, view the event agenda, plan their schedule and social activities, and get organizer updates. "The beauty of the app is that women can start connecting with other women before the event," says Felicia Davis, CEO and leadership brand strategist, The Black Women's Collective and a Take The Lead leadership ambassador who is in charge of the conference. "We want the attendees to start developing long-term, mutually beneficial relationships. The app is a great way to start the process."
