  • Wardman Park Marriott 2660 Woodley Road Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

Don't miss JWI's sixth annual mentoring conference - a gathering of young Jewish women and accomplished role models from across the country!

Take advantage of early-bird pricing: $25 for members and $36 for non-members through October 18th.

This half-day conference, which precedes JWI’s annual Women to Watch celebration, is an opportunity for young women to learn from accomplished Jewish women 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.
