California Women's ConferenceWe are proud to be a Strategic Partner of the California Women's Conference, to be held in Long Beach, Calif., May 19-20, 2014. The conference has formed partnerships with established and respected organizations like ours to develop ongoing and far-reaching women's empowerment programs.

Designed to empower women and provide resources in every aspect of their lives, the conference offers its attendees inspiration, resources and connections to take the next step in business, personal development, health and wellness, or philanthropic endeavors. For nearly 30 years, women in California and those attending from around the nation have enjoyed a this forum for building successful businesses, strengthening careers, and positively influencing the world around them. This mission closely aligns with the goals of Mom Corps and Mom Corps You, and we are thrilled to be a part of it! The California Women's Conference will continue the tradition of embracing philanthropy by donating a portion of programming and proceeds to participating charitable organizations, so buy your tickets here before the event is sold out.

The spiritual predecessor of the California Women's Conference, the California Governor & First Lady's Conference on Women, was an annual non-partisan event, was created in 1985 by then-Governor George Deukmejian to address the high failure rate among women-owned businesses by giving women entrepreneurs greater access to funding and other helpful resources. Selecting the city of Long Beach as the event's host, city officials and businesses quickly became enthusiastic supporters. Then-First Lady Gloria Deukmejian assumed responsibility for the conference, which became known as the California Governor and First Lady's Conference. Today, the tradition of enthusiastically serving women-owned businesses continues under the stewardship of Michelle Patterson, Director of the Global Women Foundation.

This conference has become a star-studded event. Past speakers have included: His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, Barbara Walters, Jane Fonda, Queen Noor of Jordan, Tyra Banks, Martha Stewart, Madeline Albright, Condoleeza Rice and many others. (You can see the full line up of 2014 speakers here, and more are still being added.) 

Mom Corps is committed to supporting and promoting the mission and continue the legacy of the California Women's Conference as one of the premier women's conferences in the nation.
