This annual Women's Conference is recognized for its unparalleled ability to empower and inspire women to become architects of change. Each year, it unites internationally-acclaimed leaders and visionaries with thousands of women to share enriching stories of transformation and success along with words of encouragement and life lessons.
What is a Minerva Award and The Women's Conference?Since becoming California's first lady in 2003, Maria Shriver has also been showing her appreciation for accomplished women on a large scale. As the host of the California Governor and First Lady's Conference on Women and Families—also known as The Women's Conference—Maria is bringing together actors, musicians and world leaders to recognize the achievements of women from all walks of life.
One highlight at the conference is the Minerva Awards, which celebrate five women who have enriched the world with their own unique gift of service. The award is named for Minerva, the Roman goddess featured on California's state seal and it honors women who have stepped forward in the spirit of Minerva and changed our world with their courage, strength, and wisdom.
To your continued growth and journey!
