The Women’s Leadership Conference

inspired women lead

The Women’s Leadership Conference of Southern Oregon grew out of a desire to see more women represented in leadership roles in business and the community. This desire is not just about inspiring women to step up as leaders, but also about encouraging women to use their voice and share their stories. From these early ideas shared over coffee a community has grown. It is dedicated to both personal inspiration and practical application, bringing together people in all stages of their careers for the conference.

Since the Women's Leadership Conference's inception in 2013, more than 1,600 leaders have attended.

Our annual conference occurs every spring, and we host WLCofSO micro events throughout the year.


The call for proposals is CLOSED for the 2019 WLCofSO conference. Thank you so much for your applications, we look forward to reviewing them.
