Our mission for this year's conference is to develop a motivated and inspired cohort of leaders who understand more about ‘The Future of Work’, and the impact on Leadership, Talent Sourcing and Retention, who have listened, debated, challenged, learnt and who are ready to head off with actions and ideas to take individually and together to influence positive change!

SHINE Awards 2023

Shining a light on leaders who go above and beyond, we invite you to celebrate our annual SHINE Awards.


There are seven award categories. The winners will be

announced at the end of the conference.

"If you are looking to be inspired, learn from others, meet a fabulous community and take a step forward with your personal and professional development then this is the event for you."

What is the IWD About?

Every year International Women's Day is celebrated globally.


Here at The WLA, we mark this occasion with our biggest event of the year. We celebrate equality and bring you live interactive debates and discussions on the issues facing leaders today.


For the last eight years, hundreds of leaders have joined this event to learn what's new, what's different, what's working NOW in the gender diversity and leadership space. Now it's your turn. If you are a leader in business then this is the MUST attend event of 2023.


This year, it will be a 1 DAY IN-PERSON EVENT, where you will have the opportunity to hear about tested, proven tactics by experts across a range of fields that you will be able to apply to your career. You will also be able to connect and ask questions to leaders from blue chip companies in the UK.


Last but not least, it is a great chance to network with people with similar challenges to yours, who have faced the same problems and have overcome them.



This is the biggest annual event by The WLA,

fuelled by inspiring speakers across a range of fields.

An opportunity not to be missed!

The People Behind the Conference

The Women Leaders Association (WLA) offers one of the most rewarding women leadership development programmes available. We develop the authentic leadership skills, confidence and courage needed for women to initiate change in the workplace today.


Based upon the principles of feminine energy, learning and connection, The WLA seeks to inspire women to step out of the shadows. To be the change they want to see.


We want a world where everyone’s potential is fulfilled, which requires a fundamental shift on the inside and practical support and encouragement from the outside.
