Iowa Women Lead Change is bringing its signature leadership conference to the Quad-Cities next spring with a lineup of speakers that includes Tamron Hall, the host of Investigation Discovery’s “Deadline: Crime with Tamron Hall” and the former anchor for MSNBC and NBC’s Today Show.
Iowa Women Lead Change, or IWLC, announced that Hall will close the inaugural Quad-Cities Leadership Conference on March 29 at the Waterfront Convention Center in Bettendorf.
