Women’s Conference



After careful consideration, the Junior League of Evansville is postponing the 2020 Women’s Conference to April 2021, due to the recent trend of Covid-19 numbers in the Evansville area. The exact date of the event will be announced in the future. The safety of our members and community is our first priority. We appreciate our sponsors and community partners for their ongoing support.

The 2020 Top 20 Women in Business and Woman of Empowerment Awards will still be presented at this luncheon in April 2021, at the Old National Events Plaza. All registrations for the luncheon and conference will be honored for the new date.

In support of our mission, the Junior League of Evansville will host the Women’s Conference and Luncheon in April 2021, at the Old National Events Plaza from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. This 3-tiered conference program is specifically designed to inspire and empower women at every stage of their leadership journey – from women who are just getting into the workplace, to rising managers, to tenured executives.
