Women’s Leadership Conference

Anyone interested in bringing change to the workplace, government, local communities, and other sectors of society to empower and build more female leaders? If so, you’re invited to join the Women’s Leadership Conference and Women’s Hall of Fame. The full-day conference this Saturday,  March 24, is set to offer a unique perspective on women’s leadership.

Topics will include the many benefits of a diverse workplace, how women have transformed the workplace, the impact female leaders have had on organizational performance, and how to empower the next generation in order to create a pipeline of powerful women leaders.

The day will include guest speakers, special guests and “hall of fame honorees.” The conference runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Cañada College in Redwood City.

The campus is pretty far from the Redwood City Caltrain Station, but SamTrans routes 274 and 278 can get you there from the station’s transit center.

Easter Bunny Hops over to Hillsdale Shopping Center

When it comes to gift-giving holiday icons who enter your home covertly, the Easter Bunny ranks a very distant second to Santa Claus (Tooth Fairy, enjoy your bronze medal). Nonetheless, little ones for some reason seem to love the idea of getting their picture taken with the basket-toting candy giver every spring.

Peninsula residents are invited to hop on over to Hillsdale Shopping Center now through March 31 to meet the Easter Bunny himself (herself???) who will be chilling out in a cozy garden. He’ll be there to meet youngsters while parents can choose from a variety of keepsake digital photos to capture the moment. Photo packages will be sold.

I hear a few adults-of-a-certain age (ok, me) are warming up their “Thanks Easter Bunny, bwok bwok” deep cut references, too.

Check out the bunny’s visitation schedule or call 650-571-1029 for more information. You can get to the shopping center easily by way of the Caltrain Hillsdale Station and SamTrans routes 294, 295, 397 and ECR.
