9th Annual Riverside County Women’s Leadership Conference

September 24, 2020 @ 1:15 am - 5:30 am

Riverside County Women’s Leadership Conference
We’ve Come a Long Way

100th Anniversary of the Passage of the 19th Amendment

The 9th Annual Riverside County Women’s Leadership Conference has gone virtual, bringing guests from any geographic location the ability to converge together on Thursday, September 24th for an exciting, uplifting half-day program. The full schedule and conference details can be found at MyChamber.org/WLC.

So what can you expect with this new format? Though we can’t physically be in the same room, attendees will still be engaged with our speakers and fellow guests through a variety of ways. The excitement will actually begin prior to the event when local ticket holders can pick up their goody bag filled with contents from this year’s sponsors and exhibitors. NEW this year is also an add-on to the ticket, a mystery box filled with items for the modern-day woman on the go.

Attendees are encouraged to anonymously submit their burning medical questions for the physicians’ panel by September 15th, to be answered live the day of the program by our esteemed panel of experts on female care. All speakers will be live, and their contact info will be provided so you can continue the conversation and learning beyond the program.

Like an in-person event, you’ll also have a few breaks to get up and stretch, and sprinkled throughout will be trivia, giveaways, and exciting moments between speakers. Can’t make it on September 24th? That’s ok, because this year, the content will be available for viewing after the event, exclusively to ticket holders only!
