2020 Theme:

Last year signified an important milestone in this century and an opportunity for reflection and new beginnings. Mother Teresa said, “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” What are we doing as individuals to listen, learn, be mindful, and shift our own perspective to leave a positive legacy in our homes, workplaces, and our communities? How are we being intentional as organizations about the impact we are facilitating within this ever-changing world?

IWL is a catalyst for change, bringing together leaders from different companies, backgrounds, races, genders and perspectives to accelerate the advancement of women. The 2020 Louisville conference focused on how we can "BE the Change” - as individuals, as allies, and as a workplace. The day provided a powerful opportunity for growth, inspiration and connections.
