The Women in Leadership Institute Is Happening Soon | Celebrate Our Trailblazing Presenting Partners & Sponsors

October 20, 2023 Katharine Panessidi


In just a few short weeks, we will kick off the Women in Leadership Institute™! This year, we are coming to you live from Orlando, Florida, and through our virtual platform, making this the most accessible Institute in its 24-year history. Our hybrid format allows us to reach more women than ever before —in person or from the comfort of their own home or office —3,000 attendees will join us for this four-day, transformative leadership development experience. As we prepare to welcome these women leaders, I am reflecting on the journey that they have taken to get to this moment: 3,000 women, 3,000 unique stories of innovation, intelligence, thoughtfulness and resilience.

Women leaders continue to impress me in all that they do – balancing home, child and eldercare, work and professional leadership responsibilities, their own personal wellness, hobbies, community involvement and more. The women who will join us at WIL represent a community of passionate, engaged and focused leaders who are raising up their teams, their organizations, and themselves. To be around these women is to be inspired, and the energy we unleash during this four-day conference is truly life-changing.

Every attendee at the Institute is backed by a trailblazing organization committed to the advancement of women leaders. These partner and sponsor organizations are moving the needle when it comes to the engagement, advancement and promotion of women.

I am deeply and personally inspired by these organizations that are steadfast in their commitment to advancing women leaders.

They include:


Our sponsor organizations work toward a more equitable future of gender parity in all workplaces and provide women leaders with the support they need to achieve their highest leadership potential and thrive.

2023 Gold Sponsor: CommonSpirit Health
CommonSpirit Health: A Champion for the Common Good

At CommonSpirit Health, women have been at the heart of our national system for hundreds of years. Our rich legacy of caring for all was handed down from pioneering Catholic sisters who established hospitals, clinics and other health services in cities and towns across the United States.

Thanks to their foresight, today we have grown to one of the nation’s largest nonprofit health systems with more than 175,000 employees – 75% of whom are women – 25,000 physicians and more than 40,000 nurses serving people.

Together, we are unified by our mission to advance social justice and committed to embracing the healing power of humankindness. We proudly offer our neighbors advanced medicine and trusted care in 24 states.

We also work to strengthen the common thread of health that connects each of us. We believe everyone has a right to be healthy and that health shouldn’t depend on our zip code, economic status or the color of our skin. That’s why we are working to improve the clinical, social, mental, economic, and environmental factors impacting health for everyone.

Our partnering clients deeply understand and value the mission of advancing women in support of gender parity. This year, the Women in Leadership Institute is partnering with 14 companies that are leading the way to engage and empower their women leaders to new heights. These organizations rely on the Institute, and I am honored to partner with them to make this experience possible.
