Registration begins at 8 a.m. with an Advocacy Information Fair, and the conference will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 3 p.m.
The conference will be moderated by award-winning author and WHDH-TV investigative reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan and feature keynote speaker Deborah B. Goldberg, the Massachusetts State Treasurer.
The other featured speakers include: Rabbi Lila Kagedan, who has been featured by CNN and is the first female Orthodox Rabbi and a medical ethicist; Leslie Weiner Alger, Advocate for Israel founder and sought-after executive coach; Sheila Horvitz, Esq., a domestic violence advocate who started the Rose Conrad Memorial Fund of Safe Futures, which provides resources to domestic violence victims; and Connie Freeman, Hadassah National Advocacy Chair.
The engaging lineup aims to inspire attendees to find the power in their voices, and use their voice to advocate effectively when Hadassah members meet with legislators for a Day in the District on January 18. Hadassah members will use that day at the State House to advocate for gender equity in medical research, equality in the workplace, domestic violence issues and support for Israel.
Cost for the conference is $85 for Hadassah members and $100 for non-members. Students are free. A hot lunch and refreshments will be provided.
