Women’s Leadership Conference of Southern Oregon
WLC is committed to creating an inclusive environment where professionals—from students to late-stage careerists—can join a like-minded community to develop work-life skills as they support others on their journey to success.
The organization, which has a ten-year legacy, grew out of a desire to see more women advance into leadership roles in corporations, small businesses, academia, government, nonprofits, and more. We are dedicated to providing personal inspiration and practical application to impact not only individuals and their businesses but all of Southern Oregon and Northern California.
Our at annual conference in May, we’ll be focusing on ways you can Innovate, Advocate and Accelerate in your personal and professional life. We bring in national and regional speakers for a networking reception the night before the conference, then a day of inspiration and connection.
Our mission is to foster leadership in business, government, and non-profit organizations that more fully reflect our community.
