Spelman College convened key multicultural female influencers and thought leaders in AtlantaHeralded as one of the most important dialogues in the nation, Spelman College convened key multicultural female influencers and thought leaders in Atlanta this week for the sixth annual Leadership and Women of Color Conference.  Over two days, more than 400 attendees discussed the increasing lack of civility in today’s workplace, political arena and communities.

Attendees were charged to explore ideas to strengthen the nation by reclaiming civility through ethical leadership and personal responsibility.

The dynamic conference featured some of the nation’s most influential voices among women including: Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post; Sara Manzano-Diaz, director, the U.S. Department of Labor, Women’s Bureau and Angela Burt-Murray, editor-in-chief, Essence.
