It’s Women History Month and all this month, 22News is celebrating women. Bay Path University did the same on Friday.

More than 1,700 women and men, attended the 24th annual Women’s Leadership Conference at the Mass Mutual Center.

The theme this year was “Why Not Me?”

President of Bay Path University, Carol Leary, told 22News that by asking the question “Why Not Me?” women give themselves more opportunities to succeed.

President of Baypath University, Dr. Carol Leary told 22News, “The theme is perfect for this time in our country and in our region. It says yes, you can lead if you want to lead. You can stay home and be a mother if you wish to do so. Your options are limitless.”

Keynote speakers include actress Rita Moreno and entrepreneur Mel Robbins.
