SIRIUS' national audience will hear from a diverse group of participants about this year's conference theme, "Be Who You Are," which seeks to motivate women to pursue a lifelong journey of self-discovery and encourage them to strive to be both who they are and who they want to be.

This year's distinguished roster of speakers and participants will include Christiane Amanpour, Lance Armstrong, Cherie Blair, Bono, Warren Buffet, Sister Joan Chittister, Marian Wright Edelman, Sally Field, Michael J.

The non-profit, non-partisan Women's Conference, formerly the California Governor and First Lady's Conference on Women, began more than twenty years ago as a small government initiative for women business owners. Under First Lady Shriver and Governor Schwarzenegger's leadership, the event has blossomed into the foremost destination for women from all walks of life to gather together -- empower, inspire and educate each other -- and become "architects of change" in all aspects of their lives.

SIRIUS Satellite Radio is home to a variety of exclusive and powerful programming for women, including Martha Stewart Living Radio, Barbara Walters' Barbara Live!, and Jane Pratt's Jane Radio among others.
