Description: The 17th Annual Women's Leadership Conference kicks off Women's History Month with the theme "Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination." The conference is an opportunity to network, learn, develop skills, find solutions and grow ideas from a multitude of perspectives that highlight women’s leadership.

In addition to a professional networking session and workshops, this year's conference features retired Lt. Colonel Consuelo Kickbusch. After graduating from Hardin Simmons University, Kickbusch entered the U.S. Army as an officer and served for two decades. During that time, she broke barriers and set records in the military where she became the highest-ranking Hispanic woman in the Combat Support Field of the U.S. Army. When the opportunity to assume a command post arose,Kickbusch shocked the military by deciding to retire. She chose to honor her mother's dying wish to get back to her roots and become a community leader. In 1996, she retired from the military and dedicated her time to fulfilling her mission of preparing tomorrow's leaders today.
