“Though March is Women's History Month, all will be able to benefit from the panelists who will be sharing varied lessons,” said Angela Yee, a Seton Hall University student who is assisting with the conference.

During the conference two awards will be given. One is a student award given to an undergraduate or graduate student who has shown leadership, commitment and dedication in the community. The other is a Woman of the Year award, which will be given to a faculty member or administrator who has made contributions and helped to empower women throughout the Seton Hall community.
