2017 Women's Leadership Forum- "Yield No More"
The Executive Leadership Council’s (ELC) Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF) is a unique professional and career development event designed for Black women executives.  Corporate thought leaders, dynamic speakers and leading executives serve as panelists and offer the participants candid and authentic opportunities for professional development, networking and feedback. 

“Yield No More” will examine the varied and often complex issues facing black women in corporate America. The discussion will focus on dispelling myths and identifying key strategies for removing organizational barriers and equipping black women executives with the tools to ensure leadership success. Our goal is to initiate a movement of black female executives who demonstrate a commitment to self-empowerment and collective progress in the workplace and beyond.
