Zainab Salbi with Renée White
Founder and former CEO of Women for Women International, Zainab Salbi has dedicated her life to empowering women in war-torn areas to become full and equal participants in their communities. In its 20 years, her organization has provided direct aid, rights education, job skills training, and small business development to more than 350,000 women from Afghanistan to South Sudan. An escapee from Saddam Hussein's Iraq, Salbi describes her own experiences of oppression, the extraordinary lessons learned from working with war survivors, and her new priority to help women in the Middle East play larger roles in business, politics, and the media.

"The Simmons Leadership Conference is a conference where over 3000 women leaders from across various industries, fields, generations, and walks of life come together to share their stories of success, which they have each uniquely defined for themselves."
"It's an empowering, inspiring, motivating opportunity which you get to experience with 3,000 other professional women, and take home skills and tools you can implement with your teams, co-workers, as well as in your personal life."
"If you only had two conferences to attend for development as a professional woman where you can network, learn new skills, and be in the company of other aspiring and inspiring women leaders, Simmons Leadership Conference is the best choice."
"The Simmons Leadership Conference is a brain trust of some of the most empowering/inspirational speakers and educational content which an attendee can take and apply to their own journey in life and in career."
