Texas Conference for Women
The Texas Conference for Women will feature Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai as the first keynote speaker for its 2021 Conference. The virtual conference will bring thousands together for professional and personal development after the pandemic forced millions of women to leave the workforce.
Yousafzai’s message about the importance of education for girls comes as the global health crisis has amplified the need for access to education. She was shot by the Taliban at 15 for promoting girls’ right to an education and, at 17, became the youngest person ever to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. A recent graduate of Oxford University, she is the author of several books and co-founder of the Malala Fund.
Yousafzai will be joined by other soon-to-be-announced keynote speakers and a host of distinguished experts who will offer insights and strategies to tackle current challenges in sessions on leadership, personal development and career advancement.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Amy Cuddy, social psychologist, award-winning Harvard lecturer, and bestselling author
- Rebecca Minkoff, fashion mogul and entrepreneur
- Amy Morin, psychotherapist, Northeastern University, podcast host and author, "13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do"
- Janet Stovall, author, "How to Get Serious About Diversity" and "Inclusion in the Workplace"
- Kim Scott, author, "Radical Candor" and "Just Work"
- Cal Newport, productivity expert and author, "A World Without Email"
