Live connection breakout sessions to spark discussion, encourage learning and foster connection between attendees.

WOMEN LEADERS X will feature several Connect sessions in virtual breakout rooms, where participants will engage in conversations led by an industry leader, including past Women Leaders board members, trailblazers, and sitting athletic directors and commissioners. All Access registrants will have the option of joining private Connect sessions for Q&A’s with this year’s keynote speakers!


Opt in to a Strong Squad when completing your WOMEN LEADERS X registration, and we will connect you with a small group of three to four attendees to be your “squad” before, during, and after the event! We’ll introduce you to your Squad via email the week before WOMEN LEADERS X so you can start getting to know one another. You may even be close enough for an in-person meet-up! Strong Squads are optional and included with all registration access levels. Deadline to register for a Strong Squad is 11:59pm CT, September 28th.
