For over 20 years, Leading Women, a division of Leading NOW, has been advocating for gender parity in leadership by supporting women’s organizations around the globe. But did you know that one of the many ways we do this is through providing our proprietary leadership content to conferences for associations and organizations across all industries? Our skill-building and development workshops focus on business, strategic, and financial acumen; strategic relationships; and mentoring,
and provide the kind of training needed for career advancement and success.

To reach as many women as possible, we have been bringing our exceptional leadership development content to our partners’ industry conferences, creating customized certification programs, and creating events that have literally changed
an entire industry. 

Here are just a few examples of the different kinds of programming we offer. 


  1. The Foundation for Women’s Leadership and Empowerment’s (FWLE) iconic Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC) was entering its 15th year–a milestone event–when Leading Women partnered with them in 2022 to support their strategic goals. We delivered all 19 skill-building workshops across three tracks of learning for a two day live in-person event, which is now ranked the #1 women’s leadership conference in Las Vegas! This year, we are back again
    as their strategic partner of choice, with 22 new and back by popular demand sessions designed to empower future women leaders at every level.

  2. Coming off the success of our partnership with Winsight Media in the creation of the Restaurant Leadership Development Conference (RLD@RLC), Winsight Media’s Convenience Store division asked us to work with them to create a Convenience Store Women’s Leadership Conference (CSW). Leading NOW stepped up to support their vision and goal by creating a unique conference for the industry. In addition to delivering the opening and closing keynotes at this inaugural event, our team of stellar facilitators–all successful business people in their own right–are facilitating highly interactive skill-building workshops for two track levels. The event kicks off a women’s leadership program that lasts year-round with teams that meet throughout the year to achieve their goal of making positive change in the c-store industry.

  3. Women in Sports and Events (WISE) is the leading voice and resource for women in the business of sports. When they were in search of a professional development partner and chose Leading Women, they recognized our exceptional leadership development content was best-in-class, and our commitment to helping women advance and accelerate their careers perfectly aligned with their mission. Together we created a customized, multi-module business acumen certification program to the delight of industry organizations. We began delivering virtually in 2021 and to date, hundreds of women in the sports and events industry have participated.

These partnerships are just a few examples of the ways Leading NOW has successfully impacted the women and industries they serve. Our unwavering commitment to partner with women’s leadership associations, membership organizations, and industry leaders that align with Leading NOW’s advocacy to develop future women leaders, remains a trademark of our own organization. 

Through our Conference Services division, we are able to develop customized programming for events of all sizes, and deliver world class, research-based leadership development content that is not only changing industries, but empowering women all over the world!
