The 2018 United State of Women Summit isn’t just a conference — it’s a powerful gathering of women and allies from across the country who know their energy and power will break down barriers that stand between women and full equality.

On May 5th and 6th, thousands of women will convene in Los Angeles to inspire and be inspired, to motivate and be motivated, to teach and to learn. Attendees will connect with leading organizations to channel their energy into action, leaving with new ideas and partners, hands-on training, and the tools and resources they need to make change at all levels.

More information including how to register for breakout sessions, food options, hotel recommendations, speakers, and additional events will be available to registered attendees in the coming weeks via email.


Day One will engage women, girls, and allies from across the country through inspiring mainstage sessions, issue-breakouts, opportunities to connect with leading fellow changemakers, and an interactive center with organizations and women-owned businesses. Connect with the VoteRunLead team!


On Day Two, attendees will fan out across Los Angeles to attend skills-based trainings or Community Teach-In’s hosted by a range of organizations that are making change on gender equity in Los Angeles. Please note that registration for these Day Two events will open at a later date. VoteRunLead will be putting on an in-person #RunAsYouAre training. Details TBA…
