Join the Yale Women’s Leadership Initiative for its 12th Annual Women’s Empowerment Leadership Conference and help us celebrate 50 years of co-education and 150 years of female students at Yale! The conference aims to connect young women with leading females in a variety of fields. Women from across the country will come to New Haven to discuss their diverse experiences and offer advice. This year, panel topics will include law, government, media, activism, entrepreneurship, finance/business, STEM, medicine/healthcare, and academia. Come listen to these incredible women speak, draw on their wealth of knowledge, and meet the leading women of tomorrow.
The organizer, Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI), was founded in 2006 by five undergraduate women at Yale who desired to create an organization prioritizing support and mentorship for female leaders on campus. In its short but remarkable history, WLI has established a variety of programs for women at Yale: biannual Job Shadowing Days, the Leading Ladies Gala that celebrates more than 200 female leaders on campus, and our cornerstone event, the Women Empowering Women Leadership Conference. Since 2006, the conference has expanded its reach to attract a diverse pool of women as well as a vast spectrum of speakers hailing from every discipline: from entertainment to government to journalism.
