Chieko Okasaki to address students in Leadership Conference
BYU NewsNet 28Feb00 D3
By Amber Meager: NewsNet Staff Writer

PROVO, UTAH -- BYU will host its Second Annual Women's Leadership Conference on Saturday, and will feature LDS speaker and former member of the General Presidency of the Relief Society Chieko N. Okazaki. Sister Okazaki will deliver the conference's keynote address, entitled "Because of the Covenant."

The conference, which is entitled "A Motion of Faith," will inspire women to display Christ-centered leadership in their endeavors, according to Todd Hendricks, an employee of Student Leadership Education, on of the BYU department's hosting the conference. "We want to reiterate to women that they have many options, but all options are centered in Christ," Hendricks said. The other department hosting the conference is BYU's Women's Services and Resources.

BYU's Women's Chorus will perform during the conference, and the conference features a range of speakers to give a good balance of the activities that women are involved in. "There will be a range of speakers--a mother, a professor, an artist, the student body vice president. It is a great opportunity to celebrate women and learn more about how we can excel from women's experiences," said Sarah Westerberg, coordinator in Student Leadership Education.

Women's Service's LaNae Valentine says the purpose of the conference is to create Christ-centered leadership, "As members of the Church, we have actually made covenants to be leaders. I think the conference will arouse in people the need to be a leader -- to stand up and speak out at home, in public and in one-on-one relationships," Valentine said.

Also available as part of the conference are several information booths from both the sponsoring departments, and other groups providing services for women, including Dallas Roberts Hair Salon, Therapeutic Massage Center of Provo, and VOICE.
