Women and Leadership 2022

10th Annual Women and Leadership Conference

The Andrus Center for Public Policy’s highly popular Women and Leadership Conference is scheduled for September 14-15, 2022.  This annual sellout conference will again be hosted on the virtual platform Hopin. The last two conferences were hosted virtually and dramatically expanded our reach and content accessibility post event! If you are itching for in-person, we understand and can assure you that the future is bright for in-person components during the conference. 

Register for 2022 Women and Leadership Conference

Over the two days, attendees can participate in six (6) keynote presentations, twenty plus (20+) Skill Builder breakout sessions (choose from option of 5-6 each time), an array of fun elective attendee activities for virtual attendees. Like an exhibit area for sponsor engagement, one-on-one networking, and more! In addition, nearly all of the conference content will be recorded and accessible for a full year following the event to registrants. This will allow for registrants to engage in as many of the Skill Builder session recordings as they chose and continue to revisit presentations on demand. 

This year’s conference once again hosts an impressive lineup of six (6) distinguished women keynote speakers who have broken barriers and improved gender balance in their field and beyond. Our amazing lineup includes: the President and CEO of Bank of the West, Nandita Bakhshi, the Director for the Bureau of Land Management, Tracy StoneManning, prominent forensic psychiatrist, author, and environmental activist, Dr. Lise Van Susteren, the first ever female to fly F-35B jets in the Marine Corps, Captain Anneliese Satz, author and activist against human trafficking, Brenda Myers–Powell, and author and founding CEO of Virgin Unite, Jean Oelwang.
