GOTG – Live from the Women’s Conference

By Tracy Arnold

TODAY is the 2010 Women’s Conference: It’s Time…to be an Architect for Change.

Hosted/organized by Maria Shriver, yours truly is lucky enough to attend the entire event (I’m a volunteer escort assigned to gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman), so I’ll be live tweeting(#TWC2010) all the action!

For those unfamiliar, the Women’s Conference (held annually in Long Beach) is the nation’s premier forum for women, empowering women to be Architects of Change ® in their own lives, their communities and the world. More than 150 extraordinary speakers come together with 30,000 women to be educated, inspired and empowered.

Be sure to bookmark their video and photo galleries, which will be updated throughout the day.

Here’s just a taste of what’s to come tomorrow! I doubt I can cover everything so if there’s something that looks particularly interesting, leave me a comment and I’ll do my best!
