Black Women’s Leadership Conference

May 18 - May 20

BWLC

This year’s Black Women’s Leadership Conference is themed “Progress, Empowerment & Collaboration.” Madison wants to equip African-American women with the tools and support they need to thrive.

At last year’s inaugural conference, Madison realized just how hard support is to come by. She met a woman attendee who was shocked to find that so many professional African-American women lived in the city and were eager to show her kindness. The woman has lived in Madison for 14 years.

“That’s when I decided that we had to do it again, because it just very much bothers me that these are sort of first-time experiences,” Madison said. “I just want to create an environment where people feel supported.”

She chose collaboration as one of this year’s themes to demonstrate the need for women to cooperate and pool resources.

“Collaboration is key, because I don’t have some huge budget, so I have to collaborate in order to execute it,” she said, noting Madison Gas and Electric and A Fund for Women helped make the conference a reality.
