A delegation of at least 80 women, including members of ConAgra Women’s Network, will represent ConAgra Foods at the NEW Leadership Summit 2012, Oct. 22 and 23 in Dallas.

The NEW platinum sponsor will hold an affinity group meeting on site. "Our attendance at the NEW Leadership Summit aligns with our Recipe for Growth, which includes building talent and developing leaders across our organization,” said Jill Shoush, sales manager, consumer foods retails sales, for ConAgra Foods. "Pushing for personal excellence is one of the ways we win. ConAgra Women’s Network provides this opportunity to actively engage in leadership development, meet with fellow ConAgra Foods peers to exchange ideas, share best practices, and network with peer companies and leaders to forge cross-functional relationships.”

ConAgra Foods employees are actively involved in NEW regions, she added. "We find the NEW regions provide similar engagement and opportunities to hone skills that might not be applicable in their day-to-day role with the organization,” Shoush said.

This year’s NEW Leadership Summit will include three keynote speakers; six workshops; three learning tracks for emerging leaders, mid-level leaders and senior executives; an all-star c-suite panel;  a two-hour NEW Leadership Academy supersession; Regional Awards Gala; Summit luncheon; and much more.

"The workshops, networking and speakers offered at the NEW Leadership Summit are amazing,” Shoush said. "The topics are relevant and you absolutely get out of the conference what you put into it.”

Shoush said she is looking forward to participating in the annual Silent Auction benefitting the NEW Scholarship Fund. "This is a great opportunity to help bring new talent into the industry via collegiate scholarships,” she said.
