The 2018 USOW Summit

THE UNITED STATE OF WOMEN SUMMIT

MAY 5 – 6, 2018

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

The United State of Women Summit wasn’t just a conference — it was a powerful gathering of women and allies from across the country who know their energy and power will break the barriers that stand between women and full equality. Over two days in May, thousands of women and allies convened in Los Angeles to inspire and be inspired, to motivate and be motivated, to teach and to learn. Attendees connected with leading organizations working at the forefront of today’s most pressing issues to channel their energy into action, and headed home to set change in motion for years to come. 

AGENDA

DAY ONE

Day One engaged women, girls, and allies from across the country through inspiring mainstage sessions, issue-breakouts, opportunities to connect with leading fellow changemakers, and an interactive center with organizations and women-owned businesses.

DAY TWO

Attendees fanned out across Los Angeles to attend skills-based trainings or Community Teach-In’s hosted by a range of organizations that are making change on gender equity in Los Angeles. Please note that registration for these Day Two events will open at a later date.

THE CENTER

The Center was the central hub of engagement within the Summit and included a marketplace of Women-Owned Businesses and Nonprofits , creative installations and unique programming. By joining us, you’ll align your business or organization with some of the most diverse, collaborative women in LA, and the brands stepping up for women’s economic empowerment!

It’s one of the most diverse events and things I’ve experienced. It was very colorful, immersive, and a safe space where people felt welcome regardless of being an everyday person or an activist.
