ILA's 3rd Biennial Women and Leadership conference provides a critical forum for bringing together top scholars, leaders, and practitioners to discuss the latest research and work about women and leadership. The 2017 conference theme, Advancing Women in Leadership: Cultivating Our Whole Selves, encapsulates two essential elements of ILA's vibrant Women and Leadership Affinity Group (WLAG): cultivation and wholeness.

Attendees will enjoy opportunities to reinvigorate and balance their whole selves: minds, bodies, careers, lives, and relationships. The first announced keynote speaker Sally Helgesen, best-selling author of The Female Advantage: Women's Ways of Leadership and one of "The World's Top 30 Leadership Gurus," will explore female leadership in ways that are powerful and engaging. The conference will also offer leadership educators, scholars, and practitioners a holistic forum to discuss work on women and leadership, share useful resources, develop meaningful personal connections, care for our health, and pause for contemplation. With your active participation, we can be Cultivating Our Whole Selves!

The Galvanize Program
Sponsor: The United State of Women
Saturday, 9 am - 8 pm
Sunday, 9 am - 6 pm
Location: Columbus, Ohio (details TBD)
Fee: $50 (scholarships are available), registration required

After the first United State of Women Summit last summer, you made it clear you wanted to keep learning and connecting – and you wanted to do it in your local community. Therefore, The United State of Women is bringing summits to communities across the country to bring together people to tackle the challenges women are facing nationally and locally. They're arming women with the tools and resources they need to keep organizing and fighting for gender equity, whether that’s through elected office, entrepreneurship, and everything in between.

The Galvanize Program will include workshops on important local and national issues, skills training, and an engagement fair. Attendees will pick a track based on their interests to receive in-depth and skills-based training developed by partner organizations. The goal is to leave the program with a clear sense of how you are going to continue working for equality in your communities, and the connections with organizations and activists to make it happen!

The Tracks

  • Political Candidates – VoteRunLead
  • Campaign Management – Wellstone
  • Grassroots Organizing – Midwest Academy
  • Leadership – Bossed Up
  • Entrepreneurship – BRAVA Investments

Engagement Fair

The United State of Women is teaming up with 3K1A Strategies to host an Engagement Fair for attendees to network with local organizations, non-profits, corporations, labor unions, and small businesses to find even more ways to turn their passion into action.
