About the Women & Power Conference

Organizers of the Women & Power Conference began with a question:

What happens when you put the words “women” and “power” together? 

Since their first trailblazing Women & Power Conference in 2002, hundreds of leaders, artists, authors, scientists, and visionaries have answered that question with courage, innovation, wit, and wisdom. For nearly 20 years, thousands of attendees have taken inspiration back to jobs, families, and communities.

Through keynotes, conversations, workshops, and entertainment, the common denominator between speakers and attendees is the desire to Do Power Differently® – to change the very nature of power and leadership.

Key Takeaways

Melissa and Linda’s key themes and takeaways are about how we show up for ourselves and for others, and the stories we create about our lives. To go deeper, ask yourself the following questions:

  • How do you truly show up?
  • How are you present?
  • How do you invite others to show up? 
  • What does it mean to tell a story with others?
  • What does it mean to hear more than one side of a story?
  • How do you hold the tensions of different perspectives in multiple sides of a story?
