What challenges and opportunities are unique
to women leaders?

The annual Women Spanning the Globe conference is a place to delve into this question. For 15 years, our team has curated unique and inspiring opportunities at the one-day event to help people grow as leaders, make connections with other emerging and existing leaders and enrich their soul. Themes for the day have included “Finding Strength in Sisterhood” and “Turning Curiosity into Courage.” 

Each conference includes a range of diverse speakers – marketing and banking executives, technology and human resources experts, journalists and engineers, for example. 

The 2022 conference will be held June 14th in Baltimore, MD. An option to participate remotely also will be offered. Read about the 2021 conference here.
