March 31, 2013
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings

In this week's special episode of "Beyond the Headlines," we take a look at some of the women behind an amazing conference sponsored by ABC7.

The Professional BusinessWomen of California (PBWC) is a community of 25,000 women in the pursuit of success with educational and networking opportunities designed to advance both personal and professional lives. The annual PBWC Conference helps attendees connect with industry experts, make real contact with people who could advance careers, explore new ways to reach their maximum potential, and create inspiration to seek new challenges.

The theme of this year's conference is "The Next Genderation." We hear from PBWC leaders who work to "unlock the full potential of women in the workplace," including U.S. Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Bank of the West's Senior VP Alexandra Roddy, and President Rachel Thomas. They tell us what to expect at this year's conference on May 23, 2013, as well as how you can create your own Lean In circles.

The PBWC Conference is the premier conference for women in business. The event is all-day and features an incredible line-up of speakers. They include: Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, acclaimed actress/performer/activist Rita Moreno, US Congresswoman Jackie Speier, and several others.
