How long is the Conference?

The 2018 Summit includes two events spread out out over two days.

The main Conference will be held on September  from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM.

In addition, we will be hosting “Opening Night” the evening before the Conference, on December 6th from 6-10 pm.

See below for details.

What should I wear/What may I bring?

Attendees generally wear business casual attire. During the day, you will be moving throughout the venue, including up and down stairs, so wear comfortable and appropriate clothing and shoes. You will receive a Conference bag upon arrival to hold all of your program materials.

Past attendees have found it helpful to bring any of the following: business cards, , phone/laptop/tablet + charger, paper/pen for taking notes, a light snack, and a water bottle.  

What is Opening Night?

For the second year in a row, we’re opening up the Exhibit Hall the night before the Conference to host a kick-off celebration. On September  from 5:30-8:30 pm you can enjoy meeting speakers, author signings, the opportunity to support women-owned businesses and local charities, and live entertainment while making great contacts before the big day. Food and drink will be available for purchase.

How do I get my badge?

You will receive your badge at check-in

What if my plans change?

All tickets are non-refundable. However, you may transfer your ticket to another party easily at no charge.


Seating is done on a first come/first served basis.

Special Needs

The Summit does its best to accommodate attendees with special needs. All such requests must be made in writing and received by September 1. Please email your request to Stephanie@leadershipgirl.com.

Are there volunteer opportunities ?

Yes! We depend on volunteers to keep things running smoothly. In exchange for their time and effort, volunteers are given complete access to Conference offerings outside of their shift schedule. Visit our Volunteer page for everything you need to know about signing up.

Are men welcome at the conference?

Most warmly! If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. We believe that gender partnership is the surest way to workplaces that work for everyone. While the majority of our attendees are women, men are starting to attend in greater numbers and typically find the day’s programming unique and enlightening.

Who produces the Conference?
