About The Moxie Conference
Mox•ie [mok-see] - noun, slang.
- vigor; verve; pep.
- Courage, determination and nerve.
- skill; know-how
Despite many gains in access and equality, women in the United States still face significant wage gaps and hold fewer senior leadership positions than men. The Moxie Conference works to change this and fulfill YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women by strengthening conference attendees’ personal career skills and creating a coalition of people dedicated towards collective action aimed at removing structural barriers for women in leadership.
