The President’s Commission on the Status of Women at IUP (Women’s Commission) is sponsoring its second annual professional and personal development conference, Unclutter Your World, on Wednesday, May 13, 2009, in the Hadley Union Building (HUB).

The morning session will begin at 8:00 a.m. with registration and welcome, followed by breakout sessions beginning at 9:15 a.m. and running until 11:30 p.m. Lunch and a presentation by keynote speaker Dr. Heather Powers, entitled “Unclutter Your World,” will be from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Afternoon breakout sessions will begin at 1:30 p.m. The workshops scheduled for the morning will be repeated in the afternoon, so you can choose to attend for one-half day or for the full day. If you missed an interesting topic in the morning, you are welcome to stay for the afternoon session.

IUP employees are highly encouraged to attend this conference, free of charge. No leave time is necessary to attend the conference; however, approval must be given from your supervisor to participate.

Workshop subjects will range from the principles of positive psychology to finding simple ways to take care of your health and how to create a more fulfilling life. In addition to workshops being offered that day, vendors and nonprofit organizations will have tables set up in the Atrium throughout the day.
