Women's Leadership Conference

The Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC) is a one-day, tri-institutional event coordinated and implemented by organizers from across the Auraria campus. Now entering its 22nd year, the WLC is intended to address the relationship between gender and leadership, specifically taking on the challenges of leading as a member of a historically marginalized gender identity group.

Students, faculty, staff, and community members are encouraged to attend this event. Additionally, this event is intended to be gender-inclusive. People of all genders are invited and welcomed.


The 2018 Women’s Leadership Conference (WLC) will take place on March 8, 2018. The theme for the 2018 Conference is Leading Beyond the Binary. Our goal is to use this theme to interrogate and extend assumptions about both “gender” and “leadership”: How can we challenge norms about what constitutes “effective leadership”? What kinds of leadership are less visible in our culture, and how might we amplify them? How do gender equity concerns and norms for gender identity and expression impact leaders of all genders?​​
