Fifth Annual Women’s Leadership Conference is March 6, 2013
The members of the 10 year old organization, Women in Periodical Publishing resolved to expand their mission in 2008, and organize an event to better showcase the annual award they bestow on a female leader. They decided their award, called the Exceptional Woman in Publishing Award, was not being sufficiently celebrated when they had to squeeze the presentation into one or another magazine conference. It was time to honor the accomplished recipients with an event they designed themselves. The first Women’s Leadership Conference in 2009 honored Alix Kennedy and featured dozens of women speaking on the major topics of the day.
Since then, the organization has changed their name to Exceptional Women in Publishing (EWIP), put on four conferences, and with new branding, more sponsor support, and an influx of new energy they have expanded outreach to included people in publishing, digital media, education, technology, and other innovative organizations and enterprises creating and absorbing content. Using social media and other new tools that connect people with ideas, the event is now a must attend. The EWIP Women’s Leadership Conference has earned a reputation for relevant, insightful discussions, with an all female speaker roster this unique national event provides a platform for the women making the revolutionary changes in the publishing and digital media “industry”.
