Ideas will be sparked, leaders will forge ahead with empathy and we will all rise stronger on our career journey at this year’s conference as we create renewed energy around work and explore the new talent landscape.

Automation, artificial intelligence and digitalization has inspired new expectations of work and pathways to achievement. This shift in work has intensified employee expectations around time, work/value alignment, skill building, equity and inclusion. Transformative trends are challenging traditional definitions of leadership and the manager role. The normalization of remote work and hybrid flexibility has compelled leaders to reevaluate team collaboration and communication, and consider new systems of work, recognition, advancement and visibility. Plus, these disruptive trends are of particular importance to women leaders in the workplace.

You’ll hear from speakers who will highlight the importance of emotional intelligence in leadership, what it means to be resilient in the face of change and the best ways to navigate ever-changing workplaces, business operations and employee expectations. Get inspired and motivated to light this new path, and stay energized to move yourself and your organization into the future stronger than ever.

Hybrid Conference Experience

Working remotely and using technology in new ways has advanced the way we all achieve results and changed how we connect with each other. And the ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference is no exception. We’re proud to offer a hybrid experience for 2022 with both in-person and virtual attendance options, which has made the conference more inclusive, accessible and widely reached.
