Servant Leadership: A Leadership Style Committed to Social Justice
Amy will kick off the day by sharing a brief introduction to Servant Leadership, the leadership model we practice and share how this approach implicitly supports social justice. She will show us how through its daily use leaders develop greater empathy and appreciation for the challenges our co-workers experience because of their personal life experiences and how Servant Leadership can free organizations from our limiting cultural restrictions.

AWARD-WINNING JOURNALIST & WRITER
The Woman’s Hour : Leadership through Generations
The history of leadership through the suffrage movement - a fight lasting 72 years - required female leaders to rise up through the ranks themselves and to nurture subsequent generations to help win the fight. Elaine Weiss shares the story of these leaders, who embodied the dedication, perseverance, and vision necessary to see the 19th Amendment ratified, giving women in the US the legal right to lift themselves up as equals to their male counterparts.

Dr. Candice Lee
VICE CHANCELLOR FOR ATHLETICS AND UNIVERSITY AFFAIRS & ATHLETIC DIRECTOR, VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY
Leading From Where You Are
A trailblazer serving as both the first female Athletic Director at Vanderbilt University and the first African American woman to head a Southeastern Conference athletics program, Candice Lee more than earned her role with a proven ability to fill the “big shoes” of her predecessor and mentor. “Be ready, be nimble, expect the unexpected” is a mantra Candice teaches her student-athletes - a mantra she has repeated to herself during her nearly 25 years at Vanderbilt as she helped facilitate a critical shift to a winning mentality: as a student-athlete, as Captain of the Women’s Basketball team, and now in her history-making role as AD. Candice will share the leadership lessons she learned as she has persevered in a male-dominated field with determination and good humor.

AWARD-WINNING FOOD AND NUTRITION JOURNALIST
Lifting Voices of the Past
Toni Tipton-Martin's James Beard Award-Winning book, The Jemima Code, opened a conversation in the food world about the role of black cooks in American kitchens. Her second book, Jubilee, expands on the deep diversity of African-American cuisine in a moment when the issue of African-American cultural ownership is particularly relevant. Toni will share her story of growth and leadership - how she rose to prominence as a food writer and ultimately editor, becoming a voice not only for her generation of Black women but raising her voice for the women who came before her.
