Sponsorship Opportunities

Women Lead Change's Student Track programs are designed to assist aspiring leaders to take a meaningful step on their leadership journey and learn more about women’s leadership and career preparation. As a conference attendee, full-time undergraduate/graduate students have access to locally and nationally-known women leaders with invaluable expertise and an opportunity to network with hundreds of professionals within their own community.

Women Lead Change is committed to providing the right development opportunities, leadership programs, education, and mentoring opportunities to give aspiring young women a chance to own their success.

Student Track registration is for students currently enrolled in a college or university.

Student Track registration is closed.

We hope you will take advantage of this unique opportunity to market to women. Exhibiting at Women Lead Change is:

  • a great way to showcase women-centric companies and organizations
  • a great way for attendees to learn about companies and nonprofit organizations that market to and provide services to women

Women Lead Change reserves the right to select exhibitors based on interest and content for our conference participants. An exhibitor is not guaranteed a spot at the conference until it receives confirmation from the Women Lead Change Exhibit Committee.

In addition to having an in-person booth, exhibitors will also have the opportunity to be a virtual exhibitor by using Whova. Here exhibitors can use a variety of methods including live-stream showcases, pre-recorded videos, pictures, handouts, promos, and online chatting to interact with attendees. To learn more check out this video Whova Virtual Exhibitor Hall or email Anna Fisher at anna.fisher@wlcglobal.org

Exhibitors do not have access to conference sessions. 

Exhibitor registration is closed.
