2021 AWBC LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE Resilience at Work: Leading. Rebuilding. Thriving.

November 3–5, 2021 || Virtual/Zoom

What to Expect in 2021

AWBC’s 2021 Leadership Conference will focus on building organizational and individual capacity of bringing strength to the Women’s Business Center network and its leaders through powerful keynote addresses, peer learning opportunities and foundational general sessions. Opt-in for concurrent breakout sessions to create a personal learning experience. Expect a blend of tactical sessions focused on “what” you do, and leadership sessions focused on “how” you do it.

The way forward requires bold leaders committed to equity, inclusion, and expanding opportunities for all women.  Women’s Business Centers are uniquely positioned to meet women where they are and help them on the life-changing journey of starting a business.

Plan to make the investment in yourself and join us for two days of sharing, learning, growth, and empowerment that will prepare you to help change the world- one woman, one business at a time!
