C200 Women in Leadership Conference

Women's Leadership Symposium in Malibu

On February 4, The Pepperdine Graziadio Center for Women in Leadership partnered with the highly acclaimed C200 organization to curate a remarkable day of learning and inspiration from nationally recognized women leaders. Established in 1982, C200 fosters, celebrates and advances women’s leadership in business. The organization includes more than 400 of the world’s most successful women business leaders, ranging from the C-suite of the world’s best-known companies to trailblazing entrepreneurs. C200 members act as role models to ensure women will continue to take increasingly significant and visible leadership roles in the marketplace.

Through panel discussions and networking, the C200 Women in Leadership Conference facilitates our shared goal to support future generations of women business leaders. During the conference, we awarded Autumn Owens, Brittney Garza, and Katherine Harrison with the C200 scholarship for their outstanding accomplishments as female MBA students.
