The Indiana Conference for Women helps women build careers, professionally develop and experience lives that are rewarding, healthy and fulfilling.
Since its inception in 2010, the conference has become the largest one day event for professional and entrepreneurial women in the Midwest.

This educational and inspirational event plays a major role in the goal that the founders, Deborah Collins Stephens and Billie Dragoo envisioned: building a strong ecosystem within the state that helps women build careers, create companies, and experience lives that are rewarding, healthy and fulfilling. The Founders believe (and research shows) that environments that foster the growth and development of women lead to healthier and more resilient communities and stronger economic growth.
Help shape a day dedicated to exploring relevant topics with internationally recognized leaders.

We support women from every background through every stage of their career.
When the Indiana Conference For Women began, there were very few resources for women in Indiana in comparison with the East and West coasts where educational resources, investment capital and networks are stronger, larger and more established. In the past ten years, there have been many conferences created and marketed to women in the Midwest. Most are being held in major cities such as Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and Boston. They were aimed at niche markets and each event had a singular focus on women involved in legal, medical, entrepreneurial or student segments. The Indiana Conference for Women was purposely created to serve the broadest scope of women, encompassing all ages, educations, and career segments. We have worked diligently to provide a balanced and enriching program serving the greatest needs of women throughout the Midwest. We have proven to be an excellent value for our historically economical admission cost..

This conference is designed to provide accurate and authoritative information from experts in their respective fields with the goal of enlightening, educating, and encouraging attendees.

(Participating in the conference is with the understanding that the conference board of directors and its contractors are not engaged in rendering professional services.)
