On Thursday, November 2, 2017, women from the Los Angeles County Fire Department, including Chief Deputy Dawnna Lawrence and Lifeguard Section Chief Chris Linkletter, attended the Women’s Leadership Conference “Awaken Anew” presented by the Los Angeles County Public Works Women’s Leadership Council at the Pasadena Convention Center.
Since 2010, the conference has been inspiring leadership with a day-long program that features speakers, interactive break-out sessions, book signings, meet-and-greet sessions, and exhibit booths. This year did not disappoint, with a prominent line-up of speakers including Los Angeles County Chief Executive Officer Sachi Hamai, former White House aide Alejandra Campoverdi and Everytable Co-Founder Sam Polk.
“Today, I hope you’ll find the encouragement that you need to build your own best life. A life that reflects your values, your passion and your leadership experience — and enriches the world around you,” said Hamai as she addressed participants at the sold-out event.
