“There is in every woman’s heart, a spark of heavenly fire, which lies dormant in the broad
daylight of prosperity, but which kindles up and beams and blazes in the dark hour of adversity.”

Washington Irving

Join us for a two day summit focused on creating a better future for all Alaskan women. We're calling on Alaska's brightest women to come together to work on finding answers to the toughest questions facing Alaskan women and families. This year's summit will be focused on building communities of change, self-advocacy and the glass ceiling, and how empowerment and mentorship are such vital tools in developing young women.
Hear from some of Alaska’s most recognized and valued women leaders as they address the challenges and successes faced relating to business, policymaking, corporate and workforce culture, ethnicity and regional difference, community and non-profit service, health and childcare, housing and other relevant subjects.
Learn from and earn the respect of remarkable woman innovators and managers in fields ranging from resource and natural development to telephony, housing, journalism, public policy, non-profits and much more. Embrace the lessons and wisdom of salient issues facing Alaskans today.

Engage in work sessions and panels that inspire creativity and progress while addressing the challenges, advantages and benefits of positive change for women of Alaska. Participate in thought-provoking exchanges highlighting current and future progress from home to career to community.
