Meet the Speakers
The conference speakers have unique perspectives that can ignite candid conversation over the real issues that women face at work. Each speaker is impactful and will speak on topics that are relevant now.
Women make up half the global population, yet, in leadership, are a minority compared to men in the workplace. This gender gap applies not just to employment, but also to compensation, career opportunities, and leadership roles.
Awareness is important, but even more so is action. Companies, teams, and peers must continually choose to challenge workplace bias, advocate for inclusion, and ultimately effect lasting change at work.
Women’s leadership conference plays a critical role in driving this change. By creating spaces that elevate, amplify, and empower women.
This is that space.
Message from Vicki
Each year, when I first enter the main hall of the conference, I’m overcome with emotion. I’m truly overwhelmed. I have spent more than two decades in a leadership positions. I was often the ‘only’ in the room and thought that’s just the way it is, what could I do to change that. But there they are, hundreds of women, just like me.
This unique conference has created a wonderful community of women, all looking to grow both professionally and personally. Women learning from one another how to navigate their journey with all the unwritten rules in our society. Women inspiring one another to continue to move forward. Women supporting one another through the stressful balance of our professional careers and home life. Women helping one another learn to unapologetically and clearly state their value. Women finding their voice.
