Stocks in this article: MGM

LAS VEGAS, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its continuing effort to promote professional development and career advancement among women, MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) and The MGM Resorts Foundation today announced the 2013 Women's Leadership Conference on Aug. 8–9, 2013 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

Navigating Your Future features diverse and nationally recognized speakers and accomplished women role models, as well as provides forums for small-group dialogue and individual networking among highly motivated conference attendees.

"As more and more women ascend to leadership roles nationally and globally, in business, in elected office, in our communities and in all phases of our lives, empowerment of women is a surging phenomenon, now and into our future," said Phyllis A. James, Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer of MGM Resorts International.  "Helping to prepare women to better meet the challenges of such roles is an important dimension of our commitment to diversity."

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, women are estimated to account for 51.2 percent of the increase in total labor force growth between 2008 and 2018.  In 2010, women comprised 46.8 percent of the total U.S. labor force.

The conference is open to women of all ethnicities, professions and social backgrounds, locally and nationally, and men who support them. The non-profit MGM Resorts Foundation is the conference's presenting sponsor and – for the first time – will be partnering with the nationally renowned Women's Food Service Forum (WFF). Proceeds of the conference after costs will be donated to one or more local nonprofit agencies devoted to the welfare and development of women and girls.

The early registration fee for conference participants is $250. Registration includes the full conference and all workshops and lectures, a networking reception, and continental breakfasts and lunches catered by MGM Grand.  Time is also allotted for attendees to build key professional relationships with other women attending while enjoying the hospitality and entertainment of MGM Grand and other resorts of MGM Resorts International.

Participating sponsorships are available to organizations or companies who share the vision and goals of this conference. Returning sponsors include Cox Communications and Greenspun Media Group.
