2022 Leadership Development: Building Towards the Future

IEEW is hosting its 2022 Leadership Development program from July 18-22 at Northwood University in Midland, Michigan. The theme, Building Towards the Future, comes after another year of challenges for so many around the world, especially Afghan women. We acknowledge the need to continue building a better and more inclusive world for women, and our hope is that participants will come away from this program with the tools and knowledge they need to succeed in the future while raising others up.
