October 22, 2019 Kristen Howe

In a few weeks, we will welcome over 1,100 leaders to Linkage’s largest institute to date!  Our Women in Leadership Institute in Phoenix, AZ is celebrating it’s 20th year, and trust me when I say there is a lot for attendees to get excited about. 

From our incredible keynote faculty—to networking experiences, specialized learning teams, and the opportunity for our participants to focus 100% on themselves, I’ve narrowed it down to five reasons to get excited

Be sure to share why you’re excited to join us by leaving a comment below or by using #LinkageWIL on social media

Learn from incredible faculty 

At #LinkageWIL, we will hear from faculty who are bold, creative, inspiring, game changers, and above all, focused on empowering you as a woman leader. Together, we will discuss the seven hurdles faced by women in the workplace, and find ways to scale these hurdles. We will hear two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and FIFA World Cup Champion, Abby Wambach, discuss the importance of being bold.  Entrepreneur, impact leader, and technologist Shiza Shahid will explore the importance of inspiring those around us, and Carla Harris, Vice Chairman, Managing Director of Morgan Stanley, will share insight and words of wisdom from her three decades of working on Wall Street. This is just the beginning of what we will learn from our amazing faculty, get ready to take notes and live tweet–you’re not going to want to forget a moment of what you hear. 

Discover new insights with your learning team 

Attendees will once again apply the concepts discussed on the main stage to their own roles and experiences in their learning teams.  These facilitator-lead groups will be created based on your Advancing Women Leaders 360° Assessmentas well as your biographical information, to match you with fellow attendees who will provide the highest level of collaboration and interaction.  Our goal is to expose leaders to a diverse group of women from different industries, with a variety of experiences and viewpoints.   

Network with purpose 

We understand the importance of purposeful networking, especially when it comes to empowering the advancement of women leaders–which is why we’ve scheduled multiple networking opportunities at #LinkageWIL. This is our largest event EVER, and that means you will have the opportunity to network with over 1,100 women leaders from Fortune 1000 companies, non-profits, and global government agencies. Your fellow attendees have a myriad of personal and professional experiences that you can learn from–and we know you have your own stories of impact that will be valuable to your peers as well.  Come prepared to listen, learn, and share your own insights, we all have something valuable to bring to the table! 

Focus 100% on Yourself 

It’s time to leave behind your day-to-day tasks… The conference calls, meetings, and to-do lists–to focus 100% on you and your personal goals and aspirations. You’re driven, and we know that on Day 1 of #LinkageWIL, you’ll find it hard to unplug from your day-to-day, but once you do, you will be immersed in a truly rewarding experience. 

Prepare to be transformed 

In many cases, #LinkageWIL attendees walk away from this experience feeling inspired, with a new outlook on life–and a renewed sense of purpose. Armed with insight, stories, and fresh inspiration, you’ll go forward with the tools you need to take the next step in your career and implement the lessons you’ve learned during your time here. 

So, are you as excited for #LinkageWIL as we are?  We can’t wait to kick of this life changing experience with you!
