Best Buddies Women in Leadership Conference

Best Buddies Women in Leadership Conference

The mission of the Best Buddies Women in Leadership Conference is to highlight the intersectionality of women and disability and to empower women with and without disabilities to be leaders in their communities.

We want to acknowledge that identifying specifically as a woman with IDD can create additional obstacles and make self-advocacy even more challenging and important. The Women in Leadership conference is designed specifically for women with IDD (and partially by women with IDD) to validate and address these issues. The program will feature a keynote address by Karin Hitselberger, speeches by multiple Best Buddies Ambassadors, a conversation with panelist, and facilitated small group discussions.    

This event is open to all women. We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people.
