Virtual and In-Person

The theme for the 2022 Women Spanning the Globe conference is “Here. We. Grow.” It serves as a powerful backdrop for women leaders to gather and discuss the collective and individual progress and challenges in their professional journey. Each conference participant will be able to explore new pathways so they can continue to grow. And they won’t have to go it alone. They will be with hundreds of other like-minded women. Together, women will rise faster.

We are curating a day of presentations and discussions related to the unique challenges and opportunities that existing and emerging women leaders face. Among the topics are how to lead from within, well-being through financial health, pay inequity in a post-pandemic world and strength through inclusion and intersectionality.
Virtual and in-person event. In-person venue is the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, MD. Tickets range from $25-$200.
