Rachael Ray, Carli Lloyd, Gloria Steinem to speak at PA Conference for Women

Jessica Alba, Marquesha Babers, Leymah Gbowee will also appear

The Pennsylvania Conference for Women is heading to the Pennsylvania Convention Center Thursday, Nov. 19 with a slew of celebrity keynote speakers. With seven keynotes in all, the list includes Gloria Steinem, Rachael Ray, Carli Lloyd, Honest Company founder Jessica Alba, Marquesha Babers, Liberian peace activist Leymah Gbowee and John Jacobs, co-founder of The Life Is Good Company.

The secondary speakers list is just as star-studded. "Action News" anchors Tamala Edwards and Monica Malpass will appear as special guest speakers while their colleague Nydia Han fronts a breakout session. Aliza Licht (aka DKNY PR Girl), authors Gretchen Rubin and Mary Spio, Tiffanie Standard and Mix 106's Nicole Michalik are among the many well-heeled speakers lined up for breakout sessions, panels and pavilions to be set up at the conference.  

The agenda includes many ways to network with local leaders across all sectors. Breakout session tracks are organized in categories for emerging professionals, leadership, career advancement, health and wellness and more. An exhibition space will be open throughout the conference with exhibitors in finance, food and drink, retail, health, politics, nonprofits and more. 

Some of the region's -- and nation's -- most powerful women will be all in one room for one day. Grab a seat at the table now before you catch a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out) next week.
