It was a pleasure and privilege to have the opportunity to listen to so many accomplished leaders and achievers, with a common shared goal of championing the cause of Diversity and Inclusion. Their experiences and the best practices they shared -- which actually work, in our present-day and time -- with all the challenges and chaos we face today, made the content relevant and pertinent. Thank you for a great experience -- it was educational, inspiring, and motivational -- and I am a richer person because of it.

Safe travels Anthony! I found the conference to be high energy, educational and worthwhile. I go to many women focused events and this one is a “not to miss” day. The integrity and effort put forth by the Anthony Rose and the Rose professional staff is exceptional. Everyone came together to support a movement. From my interactions with volunteers to world sponsors, the end result will be a day of inspiration I will never forget. Thank you for encouraging me and our students to focus on “breaking the ceiling and touching the sky!”
