When does registration open?

Registration will open at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, October 18, 2021.


Will the Conference be virtual for 2022?

Yes. We have heard from many attendees, speakers, and sponsors that they are almost – but not quite ready – for a large, in-person event. In addition, Convention Centers and local health authorities were not prepared to allow us to book space or provide guidelines necessary for an event of this size when decisions had to be made.

Fortunately, we designed a unique virtual event in 2021 that brought the best of the in-person Conference to attendees everywhere. And this year, we look forward to building on the success of last year’s event.

Nine. We will offer session tracks on leadership, personal development, and career advancement. You can choose 3 (out of 9 total) 30-minute sessions on event day, including a Q&A with speakers. All 9 breakouts will be available for on-demand playback through March 31st.


Do I have to choose the breakout sessions in advance?

No. The agenda will be posted on our website well in advance of Conference Day to help you decide which sessions you want to attend. But you don’t need to choose in advance or tell us your choices. Instead, at the time of each session, simply click on the session of your choice.


Is this a Zoom meeting?

No. This immersive and interactive environment enables attendees to network with each other, participate in Q&As with speakers, choose from simultaneous sessions, attend live keynotes with all attendees, watch author readings, and more.

Can I buy multiple tickets now, even if I don’t know who will use them?

Absolutely! You can buy a group of tickets now and submit all attendees’ contact information later.


Will there be closed captioning for all sessions?

Yes. All keynote and breakout sessions will have closed captioning on the screen.


Are group viewing tickets available?

No. One ticket enables one person to watch from their personal computer or handheld device. This is an immersive and interactive environment that does not lend itself to group viewing.


Can I share the Conference with my team?

No. A ticket enables one person to attend the Conference from a computer or handheld device. If two devices try to enter the Conference simultaneously using the same login information, both will be expelled from the conference environment.


If my plans change, can I get a refund?

Unfortunately, no. However, you may transfer your ticket to someone else. Please remember by purchasing your ticket or a group of tickets, you are agreeing to the terms of this policy and forfeit your right to dispute charges


Are men welcome?

Yes! We believe that gender partnership is the surest way to create workplaces that work for everyone. While the majority of our attendees identify as women, men have been attending in greater numbers.
