Day Two Events

ABOUT THE SUMMIT: The United State of Women Summit isn’t just a conference or a convention. It’s 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.

Day One will take place at the Shrine Auditorium and be filled with inspiring mainstage sessions, issue-breakouts, opportunities to connect with leading fellow changemakers, and an interactive center with organizations and women-owned businesses.

On Day Two, attendees will fan out across Los Angeles to attend skills-based trainings or community teach-ins hosted by a range of organizations that are making change on gender equity in Los Angeles.

DAY TWO SESSIONS: Organizations who apply to host a Day Two Session will propose and design their programming including topic, speakers, venue, and additional partners. We highly encourage collaboration between organizations and individuals to host Sessions across the Los Angeles area. Sessions will give attendees the opportunity to dive deeper into issues and make meaningful connections; in addition to giving local organizations the platform to share their work on a national level.

All accepted Session proposals will become part of the Summit’s official programming, listed on a password-protected page of the USOW website for registered Summit attendees to select, and promoted on USOW social media channels. Registration and check-in for Sessions will be managed through Eventbrite, a free event management platform. The USOW will provide Session hosts with customizable graphics to promote their Session and five complimentary tickets for their organization to attend the Summit. Hosts will be responsible for covering any costs associated with their Session.
