The 2017 Indiana Conference for Women has added a big-name Hollywood figure to its lineup of featured speakers. The conference, which will take place in November at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis, will include remarks from Oscar-winning actress Diane Keaton.
The nonprofit organization, co-founded by Billie Dragoo and Deborah Collins Stephens, is "dedicated to professional education and development for women." Stephens says Keaton "has designed a life on her own terms of authenticity and integrity."
"Billie Dragoo and I met Diane Keaton in the spring of 2014 backstage at a conference in California," said Deborah Collins Stephens, co-founder of the Indiana Conference for Women. “She had just concluded a speech to over 7000 women, most of whom were in their 20’s and 30’s. The crowd adored her, and it’s because of the genuine way she has lived her life and what she has accomplished. Today at 71 she endures as one of the most iconic and successful women in the world."
Keaton will join a number of speakers, including New York Times bestselling author Gretchen Rubin and former Chanel Global Chief Executive Officer Maureen Chiquet. Organizers say the event is the largest of its kind in the Midwest.
