Behind-the-scenes work for the 2021 Inspiring Women Leaders (IWL) conference is in full swing! To be held virtually March 8-9, 2021, the conference’s theme, Growing Together, represents unity, openness, and making connections, while also focusing on our commonalities. Growing together means taking the time to listen and learn from each other in order to build trust and create meaningful relationships.

IWL is dedicated to hosting exceptional speakers whose content is engaging, informative and of the highest quality. We are looking for conference presentations that leave the attendee feeling inspired and motivated, armed with actionable take-aways they can apply immediately to their personal or professional lives. If you are this type of speaker, consider submitting an abstract.
