Serena Williams to Join Pennsylvania Conference for Women @EstilosBlog

 The Pennsylvania Conference for Women announced today that world-renowned athlete and philanthropist Serena Williams will be a keynote speaker at the Conference on Friday, October 12, 2018 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Registration is sold out for one of the nation’s largest gatherings for women.

Serena Williams exemplifies courage, beauty, power, and style, and has overcome insurmountable odds to win a record-breaking 23 career Grand Slam singles titles, and 14 Grand Slam doubles titles. Her remarkable tennis achievements combined with her off-court success in fashion and philanthropy, as well as her status as a strategic partner and investor, make her one of the most recognizable global icons in the world.

Williams’ most recent Grand Slam win came at the 2017 Australian Open, while pregnant. In the summer of 2016, she won the Wimbledon Championship in both singles and doubles alongside her sister, Venus.

In 2015, she won four Grand Slams, including, Wimbledon, the French Open, the Australian Open, and the 2014 US Open, a feat affectionately known as the “Serena Slam,” and ended the year on the cover of Sports Illustrated as the magazine’s Sportsperson of the Year. She’s won 783 professional singles matches, 185 doubles professional matches, 72 WTA singles titles, 23 WTA doubles titles, gold medal in doubles in 2000 (Sydney), 2008 (Beijing), 2012 (London), and gold medal in singles in 2012 (London).

Off the court, fashion, acting, dancing, and philanthropy are Williams’ passions. She was named a Fashion Trendsetter by Vogue for harnessing her passion to create her HSN Signature Statement collection and released her own self-titled clothing line in 2018. Over the years she has graced the covers of countless magazines, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar UK, and InStyle in 2018 alone.

Williams started the Serena Williams Fund, and is a global Goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. In the fall of 2016, she and her sister, Venus, established the Williams Sister Fund. Their first endeavor was the launch of the Yetunde Price Resource Center in Compton, named after their eldest sister who was killed by senseless gun violence. Williams partnered with the Helping Hands Jamaica Foundation, and has funded and opened two schools in Africa currently in operation. Williams splits her time between Palm Beach, Florida and Los Angeles, California with her husband Alexis Ohanian and her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. @serenawilliams.

Joining Serena Williams at the 2018 Conference is human rights attorney Amal Clooney. Clooney practices at Doughty Street Chambers in London, where she specializes in international law and human rights. Clooney is on the UK government’s list of experts on international law and on the government’s panel to prevent sexual violence in conflict. She has also been named a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum, and she serves on the Forum’s Global Council on Human Rights. In 2016, she co-founded the Clooney Foundation for Justice.

Also joining Williams and Clooney is Maysoon Zayid. She is an outspoken headlining and touring Comedian, as well as a proud ambassador for the Cerebral Palsy Foundation. Zayid is the Co-Founder and Co-Executive Producer of the New York Arab American Comedy Festival and The Muslim Funny Fest.

The Arizona State University graduate was a full-time on air contributor to Countdown with Keith Olbermann, and she has most recently appeared on Oprah Winfrey Networks In Deep Shift, 60 Minutes, and ABC News.

Among the 100+ speakers at the Conference will be: Nisa Amoils, a venture capitalist at Scout Ventures and a regular panelist on CNBC, MSNBC, and Fox; Carol Fulp, president and CEO of The Partnership, Inc.; Dani Rylan, founder and commissioner of the National Women’s Hockey League; Claire Wasserman, career coach and founder of Ladies Get Paid; and Kristin Wong, who regularly writes about personal finance, career, and human behavior for the New York Times, New York magazine, and Lifehacker.
