DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Former tech executive Carly Fiorina is heading to Iowa next month for a conference geared at empowering women.

Will Rogers, chairman of the Republican Party of Polk County, said Monday that Fiorina will appear at the conference in West Des Moines on March 14. The event is sponsored by the Republican Party of Polk County and Polk County Republican Women.

A former Hewlett-Packard chief executive, Fiorina is considered a potential 2016 presidential candidate. She appeared at a candidate summit in Iowa in January.

Fiorina is trying to build a female-empowering organization, Unlocking Potential Project, for conservatives.

Though she has presented herself as a political outsider, Fiorina lost an expensive Senate race in California in 2010. She now lives in Virginia.
