Taking Charge of Your Future!

Learn more about women at RIT!


Saunders College of Business is pleased to host the 12th annual Power Your Potential Women's Conference. 

Power Your Potential is a half-day women's leadership conference that celebrates National Women's History Month. The event invites area businesswomen to gain insights from their peers and engage in educational activities geared at helping women succeed.

This year we will focus on 'Taking Charge of Your Future'. These past couple of years have brought many new challenges and stressors that have left us feeling not in much control of our lives. The 2022 Power Your Potential Conference will gather a community of inspiring and persevering women who take charge of their futures professionally and personally, as well as show guidance on how to find and feed your passion.
