Toni McAllister | Contributed

Exploring the intersection of personal, professional, and internal realms for women in executive leadership roles will be the focus of “The Whole Story” Executive Women’s Leadership Convention in Riverside County, an event open to participants at any stage in their leadership journey.

The one-day conference takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 13 at the Riverside County Office of Education Conference Center (4280 Brockton Avenue, Riverside).

The event is organized by the Leadership Center at the Riverside County Office of Education.

Participants will have the opportunity to “reflect, evolve, and thrive, by learning practical tools to weave balance, wholeness, and grace, into a transformative journey toward evolved leadership,” according to a news release about the event. The conference features the following keynote speakers:

Dr. Ruth Pérez, deputy superintendent, Riverside County Office of Education

Pérez’s presentation “will set the stage for the day by incorporating the stories of our lives and inviting participants to challenge themselves to see opportunity within themselves and in their world,” according to organizers.

“Being a female in leadership is not a zero-sum game, as there is room for all of us to lead from any position for the benefit of the next generation,” Pérez said.

Katie Quesada, speaker, storyteller, coach

Quesada’s presentation “will provide storytelling development of leaders who are equipped to share about themselves with their teams in an open and honest way, which creates a culture where employees are safe to do the same,” organizers said.

“At the Executive Women’s Leadership Convention, incredible women in attendance will learn the art of leveraging their personal stories and experience to craft meaningful vision for the future of their leadership,” Quesada said.

Dr. Kristin Mauldin, director, associate professor of psychology, sports and performance psychology, California Baptist University

Mauldin’s presentation will support attendees in recognizing their strengths and weaknesses to support being brave in moving forward with a desire to help, serve, and live out their purpose.

“I am excited and honored to be a part of a conference that empowers the women leaders (future and present) in our community,” Mauldin said.

“I’ll be revealing the thrilling power of passion, perseverance, and purpose — the triumphant trio for women leaders,” Valentine said. “Attendees will witness my dynamic journey from tragedy to triumph, serving as a powerful reminder of the boundless possibilities that unfold when we break through barriers, ignite personal passions, and thrive in every facet of our extraordinary lives.”
