ABC 7’s Chicago Karen Jordan Presents Keynote on Women Building a Legacy
April is National Stress Awareness Month and several recent studies have come to the same conclusion: women are feeling the pressures of stress more than their male counterparts. On Saturday, April 27, Leading Ladies International will host the 4th Annual Empowerment Conference from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. at Cibola located at 1647 S. Blue Island featuring the morning panel, State of the Union on Women's Health addressing how women are dealing with stress and health challenges as wives, mothers, employees and caregivers. The second panel will feature the keynote address Surviving and Thriving to Build a Legacy as a Leading Lady given by ABC 7 Chicago news anchor, Karen Jordan.
“When we first started Leading Ladies International Conference people were faced with a financial crisis across the country and many people were loosing hope as well as confidence in their dreams,” Loftin-Smith explains. “Over my 17 year professional career I was able to connect with so many positive women who were mentors to me. I wanted to share my connections to help women cultivate relationships, expose dreams, provide support for next level success and to encourage generational wealth.”
In the 4th year, the 2013 Leading Ladies honorees and panelists include Chicago women from all walks of life. Panel discussions will be aimed at motivating and inspiring the audience with candid and honest dialogue in an atmosphere of fellowship and camaraderie. Attendees will experience compelling stories from leading ladies in the area of health and wellness, business, entrepreneurship, family, and career. There will also be a Leading Ladies vendor marketplace for women to experience demonstrations, “how to” clinics and coaching strategies to improve overall health, success and wealth. There is also lunch and a healthy breakfast option included.
