2015 UC San Diego Women’s Conference Keynote: Tricia Downing

This year’s UC San Diego Women’s Conference keynote is Tricia Downing. Downing is an elite athlete, author and transformational specialist who has overcome overwhelming odds to achieve success. After a tragic accident nearly ended her life, she embraced change and reemerged as an elite wheelchair athlete and became the first female paraplegic to complete an IRONMAN Triathlon. Downing will share lessons about facing the unknown, overcoming natural resistance to change, feeling more at ease with change and realizing the benefits of embracing new ways of thinking, doing and acting.

    Would love to see the schedule, break out sessions and information on the topic. The name of speakers is not enough, Thanks, Carmen

  2. Hi Carmen,

    We have confirmed the speakers and are now working on gathering their information for the website as well as determining the time they will be speaking during the breakout sessions. We hope to have this up soon. We will announce this on the website as well as our Facebook page. Thanks so much for your interest!

  3. Hi Carmen,

    We have uploaded a working schedule, subject to room changes for one or two the speakers. We are also still finalizing session topics, but this should give you a good working base for what we have this year: https://ucsdwomensconference.com/2015-schedule/
