Women’s Conference 2021

Purdue women will motivate, inspire, uplift, and connect during Women’s Conference 2021, hosted by the Purdue Women’s Network.

The conference theme, Design Your Journey, will highlight the peaks and valleys of our personal and professional journeys, shared from the main stage and through numerous breakout sessions and facilitated conversations. This conference is both a personal and professional retreat for Purdue women of all ages to explore ideas, share insights, and design the life and career they want.

Due to COVID-19, we are moving the conference to an online format. The conference will occur during the week of May 3–7, 2021. The specific schedule currently is being determined.
