What is the WoW Conference and Gala?

The WoW Conference and Gala is an inaugural event designed to celebrate and empower women in the extended workforce, with a focus on networking, learning, and recognizing the incredible contributions of women across the global talent ecosystem.

How can men be involved? Can men join?

In shaping the future of the extended workforce ecosystem, it’s crucial to foster an inclusive environment that welcomes diverse perspectives and talents. While our mission at the conference is to spotlight and empower women’s achievements, we also recognize the indispensable role that men play in this dialogue. Building a more equitable and dynamic industry requires collaboration and mutual support from all genders. This holistic approach not only enriches the conversation but also paves the way for more innovative and sustainable solutions. Thus, our agenda is carefully designed to include sessions and discussions that are relevant and engaging for everyone, aiming to cultivate a community where every participant feels valued and empowered to contribute.

We encourage attendees to dress comfortably but professionally overall.  The job fair is a bit more casual.
