Through expert presentations, large-group plenary discussion and small-group exercises, conference attendees will be able to: 

  • Describe global trends and cultural similarities and differences for advancing women leaders in education, research, practice and industry. 
  • Identify personal leadership strengths that contribute to women’s advancement and learn how to use strengths to influence career trajectory, the profession and community health. 
  • Discover the benefits of collaboration across health profession disciplines for better oral health outcomes. 
  • Recognize the increased value of allied health careers in the health workforce.
