Iranian American Women's Leadership Conference is coming to San Francisco



The Iranian American Women Foundation is proud to announce the next location for its Women Leadership Conference: San Francisco!

It's happening for the first time in San Francisco on May 3rd at the San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront hotel.

The San Francisco Planning Committee, which is made up of San Francisco's own very accomplished Iranian American Women, and Foundation Trustee Neda Nobari, held its first planning meeting on January 11.

And once again, the Iranian American Women Foundation will bring women together to inspire, connect and empower them to make a difference, pursue their dreams and reach their full potential.
IAW's Leadership Conference goal is to gather women to exchange ideas about a wide range of issues. These topics include mastering the work-life balancing act, finding the courage to follow your dreams, and why one's legacy matters.
