Recap: Women’s Leadership Conference

On Monday, the event we’ve been blogging about and everyone’s been raving about happened: The annual Women’s Leadership Conference. Since it went so well, I’m sure people will be raving about it for a while, until the next one! Since the theme of the conference was “Telling Our Stories Through Social Media”, I thought I’d do a recap of the social media highlights on twitter using our hashtag #ssuwlc.
