Women’s conference
promotes confidence

For Delores Simpson-Kirkland,
life has not always moved in a
straight line.
Simpson-Kirkland, the keynote
speaker at the Women’s Leader
ship Conference on Saturday, said
she had gone through much with
her life and family to get where she
was today.
A counselor at Park Middle
School, Simpson-Kirkland told 70
women at the conference to take
risks, keep a high level of motiva
tion and stick to their beliefs.
She also discussed the impor
tance of leadership and said that
being a leader was not a popularity
Students have to know where
their values arc and where to draw
the line, but not give up what is
important to them, she said.
“Don’t lose your fight,” she said.
“Don’t try to be something you’re
not. Don’t live with regrets.”
After her speech, participants
split into small groups to discuss
In one group, students discussed
how they were more independent in
college than in high school, and
how there were more leadership
opportunities offered at college.
Three workshops covered issues
involving male and female differ
ences in leadership, communica
tion styles, small-groupdiscussion,
resolution of conflicts and analysis
of dreams to access inner wisdom.
Four panelists then discussed the
challenges women face and gave
advice on how to be leaders.
Kathleen Allan, education coor
dinator at the Women’s Clinic of
Lincoln, said women had to accept
themselves before becoming lead
ers and not try to fit into society’s
“We are all unique and have our
own gifts,” Allan said.
Several students said they en
joyed what other women had to say
about leadership.
Molly Klinedinst,a freshman En
glish major, said many people could
nave gained insight from what was
“I think learning as much as you
can about women’s issues is benefi
cial,” she said. “And any time you can
learn from someone, take it.”
Julee Dunckacke, a freshman
computer engineering major, said
she attended the conference because
she knew other women interested
in leadership would be there.
She said hearing women’s sto
ries about achieving leadership
made her more confident.

1 hat s why I went to
Planned Parenthood.
I I used to believe those stupid
myths like, "You can't get pregnant your
first time," and "You won't get pregnant
if you do it standing up." Yeah, right.
Look, too many of us don't have a
clue when it comes to birth control. That's why there's
Planned Parenthood. They've been the birth control experts
for more than 75 years. The people at Planned Parenthood
know it's tough to get the facts about birth control, safer sex,
and sexually transmitted infections. They really listened to
me, and helped me choose a birth control method that works
Everything is completely confidential. And the fees are
low, so I can afford it.
So go to Planned Parenthood. Because when it comes to
birth control, you can't afford to be clueless.
