This leading-edge movement is focused on developing women leaders and supporting them to advance their participation in higher-level leadership roles.  As part of this movement, powerful and influential women leaders gather to attend the 4th Annual “Extraordinary Women Leading Change” Leadership Conference.  This year’s Conference takes place on September 14th, 2016 at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort, from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm.


GCI Worldwide Corporation hosts the Conference, along with partners such as WEL Florida, VITAS Healthcare Corp., Tenet Florida Physician Services, SFBJ, among others.  A portion of the Conference proceeds will benefit: Pace Center for Girls.  Hundreds of executives have been joining the conference since its inception, affirming by their involvement in the movement, that elevating women leaders is serious business.


Founder of the movement and Keynote Speaker Giselle Cheminand, President & CEO of GCI Worldwide Corporation will be joined by Fabiola Brumley, SE Region Executive in a seven-state area for Bank of America Merrill Lynch and Palm Beach County President; Karen O’Byrne, CFO and COO of Modernizing Medicine; Susan Amat, Ph.D, CEO & Founder, Venture Hive; and Rachel Zietz, Founder and CEO of Gladiator Lacrosse.


This movement has proven to be really meaningful and relevant to leaders; that is why has attracted attendance  from companies of high caliber such as Walgreens, Wells Fargo, AMEX, IBM, Accenture, Royal Caribbean, Lockheed Martin, VITAS, Tenet Healthcare Corporation, Mass Mutual, Starbucks, FPL, JLL, UBS Financial, JM Family, Celebrity Cruises, AutoNation, Bank of America, Western Union, Wal-Mart, Merck, Ryder, among many others.

Each year, the “Extraordinary Women Leading Change” Conference grows and brings together top executive women leaders within the community as well as nationally, from diverse backgrounds and industries.  On stage Presidents and CEOs, C-Suite members and Entrepreneurs share proven strategies for leading change based on real life experience, influencing audience to take positive action towards their career advancement “Only 4.6% of top companies are lead by women and that impacts our communities in a very significant way, specially culturally and financially.  We can rise above the circumstances and change this reality.  That is what our movement is here to accomplish.  We do have the power to lead change,” says Cheminand, Founder of the movement.

Besides hearing thought-provoking ideas, leaders have the opportunity to be coached, mentored and have a chance not only to network but learn how to build strategic alliances. Through guided activities participants are able to establish connections that will lead to growing relationships and expanding their business.  Seating is limited, register now.

It’s 2016 and paying men and women the same for a day’s work is still, puzzlingly, an issue.
