Thank you for your interest in The Women’s Center 31st Annual Leadership Conference. Register Now.

The Leadership Conference will take place on April 22 at the McLean Hilton.

Since 1986, the Conference has been our region’s premier leadership conference. With high profile speakers and standing room only breakout sessions, The Center brings together 700-800 attendees for leadership development and networking that has earned it an exceptionally high attendee return rate. I am excited to announce that the 2017 Conference on April 22, 2017 entitled “Connect-Inspire-Act” will celebrate our 31 years of excellence in presenting leadership venues.

This year we are introducing a new feature to our agenda – the World Café – which is an opportunity for invited senior leaders from our sponsors to come together to have a meaningful dialogue about advancing the leadership of young women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-related careers.

Lead by a panel of accomplished female executives and academics, participants will further the conversation as they engage in interactive dialogue and collectively share thought leadership for inspiring a better world. Learn more about Sponsorship Opportunities.
