Registration is now closed for the 2022 Central Iowa Conference. 


This program is valid for 8 PDCs for the SHRM-CP® or SHRM-SCP® (Activity 22-ADZPZ).

As Women Lead Change continues to be laser-focused on advancing women leaders, we strive to be inclusive of all women, and their communities. A diverse audience increases diversity of thought and creates more opportunities for personal and professional development. 

In these efforts, we are collecting data from the audiences who access our services and programs, through our registrations. These demographics will be used to create a baseline of our audience reach and will be used comparatively with data sources from the region to continue in the direction of gathering a diverse group of thought leaders and attendees. This data will also be calculated and reported on the aggregate to sponsor organizations and used for marketing and grant writing, when applicable. Your participation in this data collection is completely voluntary, and you can choose not to answer the demographic questions.



Women Lead Change is committed to bringing all women leaders to our events, with an attendee makeup that reflects the communities in which the conferences are hosted.

This year we are inviting small business owners and entrepreneurs to apply for the chance to attend the conference free of charge. This opportunity is intended to create a broader audience at Women Lead Change events in order to learn from each other. Diversity of thought fosters learning and insightful conversation.

Each scholarship awarded is valid for one conference registration, along with exclusive invitations to conference events.

Nominations are now closed. 

We'd be thrilled to visit with you about sponsorship opportunities at the Central Iowa Conference. Benefits include brand exposure to 1,000+ conference attendees, complimentary registrations, and much more.

Contact Bobbi Segura at Bobbi.Segura@wlcglobal.org to learn more about sponsorship opportunities and benefits.


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 receiving confirmation from Women Lead Change.

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 Kennedy Hannan at kennedy.hannan@wlcglobal.org

Exhibitors do not have access to conference sessions. 

Exhibitor registration is now closed.
