WHAT Is Leadercast Women?

The vision for Leadercast Women is to create an inspiring and collaborative environment for women and men to have an amazing leadership experience. Leadercast Women aims to change the world for the better by creating an event where professionals, both female and male at all levels and from all walks of life, can hear inspiring female leaders share their experiences, engage in meaningful dialogue and connect at a deeper level with others who are on the same leadership journey.

WHY Attend Leadercast Women?

Studies show that businesses are more effective when both men and women have an equal leadership voice. The journey of being a Leader Worth Following is lifelong, and one of the first steps an individual must take is to establish an open dialogue about what makes a great leader. It is necessary for both men and women to engage in this conversation, which is why men are invited and encouraged to attend this event.


The Leadercast team believes we have an obligation and responsibility to fill the world with Leaders Worth Following, and we’re asking you to join us. We’ll set the stage, bring in the experts and build the agenda—you bring your aspirations, challenges and, most importantly, your voice. Together we can make a positive impact on our world and cultivate leaders who will determine its future.
