GAME ON! A Slam Dunk
By  LOU FANCHER | Correspondent

At the East Bay Women's Conference   March 5, the paradigm of women in leadership shifted. Talk of "woulda, coulda, shoulda" leadership was out; real- life examples of what women have done, are doing and are determined to do more often were in. 

Presented by the Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau with primary partners John Muir Health and Stanford Children's Health and other sponsors, the event held at the San Ramon Marriott sells out annually. Keynote speaker and former second lady Dr. Jill Biden and featured speakers addressed more than 500 Bay Area corporate and nonprofit leaders, entrepreneurs, small business owners, working professionals and mothers. Attendance was predominantly women, although men are welcome and a handful appear each year. Professional development workshops, casual networking, vendor exhibitions and a festive closing reception offered opportunities to fortify established relationships and forge new connections.
