The annual Women Spanning the Globe conference is a chance to learn from and network with hundreds of emerging and existing leaders, most who identify as women.
The one-day event is hosted by the World Trade Center Institute (WTCI). The range of speakers since the annual event was started is diverse and expansive – marketing and banking executives, technology and human resources experts, journalists and engineers, for example. But the challenges facing professional women often are the same. Themes for the day have included “Finding Strength in Sisterhood,” "In Your Element," and “Turning Curiosity into Courage.”

Women perform the best as leaders when they are doing something they enjoy. They, in other words, are in their element.
That's why “In Your Element” was the theme of our 2023 Women Spanning the Globe conference, held June 6th in Baltimore and virtually.
Being in your element often happens when there is a connection to the natural world. So, our conference was built around four natural elements – fire, water, air, and earth. There was, for example, discussions related to being powerful (fire), intentional (air), empathetic (water), and healthy (Earth). All the speakers focused on the challenges and opportunities in the business world that are unique to women.
