April 6-8, 2016


A Conference with a TWIST
TWIST is not your usual conference with concurrent tracks, breakout sessions, and big anonymous hotel ballrooms. The TWIST Conference for Women in Leadership causes powerful change. Join a diverse group of high potential women leaders and superb faculty members from the McColl School of Business for the TWIST Conference.

Attend TWIST
TWIST will be an opportunity to connect with a rich and diverse network of women leaders, and gain confidence and self awareness. There will be ongoing meetings and connections after the conference, and participants will receive a conference "book" of readings and resources. The conference begins on April 6 and ends on April 8, 2016, at the Lodge at Ballantyne Resort.

Invest and Invite a Leader to TWIST
Benefits for your organization will include giving the leaders you send a rare opportunity to step back and examine some fundamental assumptions they carry about themselves and their leadership in your organization. Who in your organization is showing promise as a leader, affects an important component of you business, may have greater skills than the organization is utilizing, shows the capability to look at herself and others, and has the patience to pursue deeper and more meaningful leadership questions?

Suspending distractions and stepping away from day-to-day responsibilities at work and at home clears the path to powerful change. It is an investment in your future that sends a serious signal that you value the contributions of women leaders and support their development.  The experience exposes participants to leading-edge research and thinking with an emphasis on immediate application.  

2016 TWIST Participation is $5,000 
(All inclusive - Meals, Accommodations, Materials, Conference Sessions and Workshops)

"It is very difficult to put this most valuable, enriching, rewarding experience into words. Nonetheless, I am convinced I will become a better person, a better leader, and a more effective employee as a result of this conference."
- 2013 TWIST Participant

Power Through Partnership

Betsy Polk and Maggie Chotas
Authors & Workshop Facilitators                                                                                           

Betsy Polk and Maggie Chotas have learned something powerful; when women work together they discover a level of support, flexibility, confidence, accountability and freedom to be themselves that they rarely find in other work relationships. Polk and Chotas demolish the myths that keep women from collaborating and offer advice for handling a host of potential challenges.
