2023 NATIONAL WOMEN VETERANS LEADERSHIP & DIVERSITY CONFERENCE
Find out What’s Happening!
A Message from the Visionary of the National Women Veterans Leadership & Diversity Conference
For years, I attended women veterans leadership conferences and empowerment events and always felt a little out of place. I left feeling disconnected. Although I could relate to the women at these gatherings, they could not relate to me. And no matter how great the speakers and content were, none of it fulfilled my inner core needs.
Now, most of the events I attended for women veterans were ceremonies to celebrate my service. They lasted only an hour or two. There were no opportunities for networking, empowerment, or education. Once again, I found myself unfulfilled and wanting more.
It was time to build something that would provide more – for me, for you, for all Women Veterans, so I created The National Women Veterans Leadership and Diversity Conference (NWVLDC). The NWVLDC is uniquely designed to address the unique needs of Women Veterans based upon the service and sacrifice you rendered to our country. Salute!
This year, we are excited to celebrate NWVLDC’s 10th anniversary. Over the last 10 years, you’ve helped make this the fastest-growing conference for Women Veterans nationwide!
Gathering Women Veterans, and the community stakeholders who support them, is my passion, my mission, and my purpose in life. I personally invite you to experience the power of this conference and access the community and connection you deserve!
Register today! I look forward to seeing you there!

What is the National Women Veterans Leadership & Diversity Conference?
When women leave the military, they enter the civilian community with skills sharpened by years of experience and high-stress operations. They are leaders, organizers, and misson-oriented do-ers.
And yet, even with all that, many women veterans report that they feel a sudden loss of identity, an absence of belonging. Their unique backgrounds have prepared them to make immeasurable contributions to their families, workplaces, and communities, but many struggle to move forward and leverage the skills they have to offer.
That’s where the NWVLDC comes in.
The NWVLDC helps women veterans transition out of the military smoothly, advance their careers, form meaningful relationships, network with industry leaders, and find a place of belonging in a supportive and compassionate community. The NWVLDC fills the gaps left by so many other well-meaning but insufficient programs.
Created by the Women Veterans Interactive Foundation, the NWVLDC provides real opportunities to:
During the conference, Women Veterans will enjoy a safe, supportive space to embrace their experiences – and each other. Workshops are designed to inspire and equip. Socials are designed to connect and encourage. Speakers’ addresses are designed to empower and activate.
Who is NWVLDC for?
In short, the National Women Veterans Leadership and Diversity Conference is for YOU, Women Veterans and community stakeholders who support them.
Think of the potential when you gather with women from across the country, including:
