Women Leaders Conference
Join the Women Leaders Online Community
We may not be getting together in person in 2021, but that doesn’t mean our networking is on hold!
The Women Leaders Conference team is pleased to announce our newly established partnership with Building Brave, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering women through access to mentors, guidance and inspiration. Mary Burke, founder of Building Brave and respected Women Leaders Conference speaker, joined forces with our team to create UWM’s Women Leaders Online Community launching on January 21, 2021.
UWM’s Women Leaders Online Community:
- Builds and supports the professional development of women leaders.
- Seeks multiple, respectful perspectives on relevant issues.
- Utilizes mentors and subject matter experts who are leaders in their disciplines.
- Encourages dialogue and questions from and between all community members at every stage of leadership development.
Join by registering with Building Brave. You will then be invited to connect when the Women Leaders Online Community launches on January 21. Access to this valuable community is free if you are a past Women Leaders Conference participant or an employee of one of our 2020 sponsors.
Why now? The first 250 to join will be entered in a drawing to win a book by a past Women Leaders Conference presenter.

Wendy Baumann, President and CVO, WWBIC
