JWI's annual mentoring conference is a gathering of young women and female-identifying individuals alongside accomplished role models from across the country!

This half-day conference, which precedes JWI’s annual Women to Watch celebration, is an opportunity to learn from accomplished Jewish leaders in a variety of fields, including technology, science, entertainment, philanthropy, business, spirituality, and more. All of the featured speakers are current or former Women to Watch honorees who have made exceptional contributions in their communities and professional lives. After a series of workshops covering issues important to women today, the conference will conclude with an interactive session to solidify takeaways and action steps for professional and personal development.

Please note that this conference has value for people of all religions and backgrounds - meaning, you do not need to be Jewish to attend!
