14th Annual Women Who Lead VirtualConference | October 22nd - 23rd

Women Who Lead (WWL) is a two day leadership & career virtual conference designed to enhance the personal, professional & academic leadership development of students at FIU. We achieve this by engaging students with experiences central to female-identified faculty, staff, alumni and professionals of all industries.

With Women Who Lead, we seek to:

- enhance participant’s understanding & awareness about the scope of women in leadership in our society today;

- provide participants with an opportunity to interact with & learn from women leaders in a variety of career fields;

- develop a greater understanding of the diversity of careers available in a variety of fields; and

- assist our students in developing their personal leadership plan.





I'm only planning to attend 1 day or portion of the conference(s). Is there a separate ticket for someone in my predicament? There is only one ticket option which gives you access to Day 1 AND Day 2.

Will the sessions be recorded? Some content will be recorded based on contractual and speaker limitations.

How will I access this event? Attendees will receive a comprehensive welcome email after registration with details on how to access the virtual conference platform.

Am I eligble for a refund? Tickets are non-refundable.
