The Power and Potential of Women

In conjunction with our in-person conference programming, the UMass Lowell Women's Leadership Conference and Conversation Series is committed to providing focused, virtual online programming to help all of us lead in today's fast-changing environment.

Why This Conference Is for You

Welcome to the 5th UMass Lowell Women's Leadership Conference, a one-day event that brings together an inspiring and engaged group of leaders and aspiring leaders. Whether you consider yourself to be a leader today or are still wondering what leadership means to you, and wherever you are on your career path or life's journey, this conference has content and programming that you will find both valuable and enjoyable.

Feedback from past participants tells the story:

I was very nervous to come here. It was my first conference, ever. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Everything was incredibly organized, and everyone was incredibly kind. I am glad that I came.

Love, love, love this conference.

Please keep doing it for as long as you can - I've found it helpful in so many ways at different years in my professional career.

Each year, the conference sells out, and participants leave inspired, more connected than ever before, and motivated to take themselves to the next level. This year's conference will be on June 21, 2022, at the UMass Lowell Inn & Conference Center in Lowell, Massachusetts. The program will include a morning keynote by UMass Lowell Chancellor Jacqueline Moloney and the day's content will follow four distinct tracks, with multiple interactive sessions, workshops, panels and speakers. We will conclude the day with a final keynote session and our annual cocktail networking event.

But that's not all! Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the conferences, and our desire to inspire leaders all year long, we began partnering with corporations and industry leaders in 2020 to launch the UMass Lowell Women's Leadership Conversation Series online to complement the in-person conference program. We invite you to join these conversations leading up to the conference. We will announce them via email to our distribution list and via this website. More details to come.

Topics both for the in-person conference and the virtual conversations sessions include:

  • Transformational leadership
  • Mentoring
  • Advancing your career
  • Whole-self well-being
  • And so much more!

Previous speakers include Taniya Nayak (HGTV and Food Network), Bonnie Comley (Broadway producer and CEO), Therese Gearhart (Coca-Cola), Sophie Vandebroek (IBM), Linda Gadsby (Scholastic) and many more.
