The 12th Los Angeles County Women’s Leadership Conference took take place on Thursday, September 1, 2022 at The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites in Downtown Los Angeles. The conference was packed and admission for the event SOLD OUT. The Los Angeles County Women’s Leadership Conference was created by the women of Los Angeles County Public Works as an opportunity to create their own event that inspires attendees to innovate, learn, and connect with the community.
In 2010 the first Public Works Women’s Leadership Conference was held with over 300 attendees from government, business, and the community. The one-day conference funded entirely through corporate sponsorship quickly became a much-anticipated County event. In 2015 Public Works collaborated with other Los Angeles County departments to expand the Conference’s impact which now hosts over 900 attendees.
The passion in which this event was created has continued to fuel its fire, and this year was no exception.
Keynote Speakers for the 12th Los Angeles County Women’s Leadership Conference included:
Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell, 2nd District Supervisor, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors;
Marissa Orr, Former Executive at Google and Facebook; Best-Selling Author, Lean Out: The Truth About Women, Power, and the Workplace
Michelle MiJung Kim, Author, The Wake Up: Closing the Gap Between Good Intentions and Real Change; CEO & Co-Founder, Awaken
Stephanie Wiggins, Chief Executive Officer, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority
Two of Citadel EHS’s inspirational women leaders, Nalinna Rasu and Nicolette Casarez, attended and sponsored the 12th Los Angeles County Women’s Leadership Conference. Nalinna Rasu is quoted saying
“It was a privilege to meet so many women leaders in all walks of life. Glad to have had the opportunity to support LA County, who are not only our client, but also our advocates in making our community a better place to live, work and play!”
