LAS VEGAS, Feb. 13 /CSRwire/ - As part of its continuing effort to promote professional development and career advancement among women, MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) and The MGM Resorts Foundation today announced the 2014 Women’s Leadership Conference on Aug. 6 and 7, at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

The Women’s Leadership Conference will provide attendees with a range of learning opportunities, motivational guidance and personal growth tools, including:

  • Exposure to diverse and nationally recognized speakers and accomplished women role models
  • Two days of career-oriented workshops that will give women hands-on opportunities to develop skills based on their career needs
  • Three distinct learning tracks for women who are Emerging Leaders, Emerging Executives and Executives
  • Workshops for entrepreneurs who are well-established or just thinking of starting their own businesses

“So many working women have told me that they feel they could take their careers to a whole new level if they had some structured guidance along with networking opportunities,” said Phyllis A. James, Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer of MGM Resorts International. “This conference provides a tremendous opportunity to women who are looking for ways to develop professionally and personally.”

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, women are a powerful demographic in the U.S. workforce. In 2010, they comprised 46.8 percent of the total U.S. labor force. They are also expanding their roles, taking on more leadership and entrepreneurial opportunities. In recent years, women-owned businesses have become a major force in the U.S. economy; since 2007, they have employed 7.6 million workers and reported $1.2 trillion in sales.

The conference is open to women of all ethnicities, professions and social backgrounds, locally and nationally, and men who support them. The non-profit MGM Resorts Foundation is the conference’s presenting sponsor. The Women’s Food Service Forum will once again provide support for the conference. Proceeds of the conference after costs will be donated to one or more local nonprofit agencies devoted to the welfare and development of women and girls.

The early registration fee for conference participants is $275 through May. Regular registration will be $350 from June to Aug. 7. Registration includes the full conference and all workshops and lectures, a networking reception, and continental breakfasts and lunches catered by MGM Grand. Time is also allotted for attendees to build key professional relationships with other women attending while enjoying the hospitality and entertainment of MGM Grand and other resorts of MGM Resorts International.

Participating sponsorships are available to organizations or companies who share the vision and goals of this conference.
