Pack up your power outfit and start working on those conversation starters, because here at Levo, we’re officially declaring it conference season. Last year, The New York Times ran a story on the rise of women’s empowerment conferences, and this year, those same events — run by women, about women, and for women — are back and better than ever.
At a typical conference, attendees will grow their professional networks, soak up some amazing career advice, and hear from any number of A-list speakers.
Want in on the fun? Consider adding one (or more!) of these seven Levo-approved events to your calendar before the season ends. We promise they’ll leave you feeling inspired.
