NAEM's 2017 Women's Leadership Conference

Why Attend


Learning for Women EHS Leaders at All Career StagesThe NAEM Women’s Leadership Conference is NAEM’s most sought after conference of the year. It’s the only conference that helps women working in corporate EHS&S become better business managers, excellent communicators and strong influencers in order to implement environmental and sustainability initiatives in a largely male dominated field.


With fantastic speakers and top leaders from the EHS&S field and sessions designed specifically to help women advance, everyone will leave feeling inspired, motivated and ready to make a huge impact in their field. This year’s event will have especially great networking opportunities with other high-level EHS&S leaders in relaxed environments like yoga and wine tasting. It’s an event you won’t want to miss!


Be Inspired

"While I have attended many NAEM events, the Women's Leadership Roundtable was the first time I had the opportunity to network and share experiences with so many of my women peers, especially in leadership positions. The program was diverse with useful information passed on from female leaders at non-profits, government agencies and multinational companies. However, what impacted me the most was the feeling of community you have when you get several women together sharing their passions, ideas, and mentorship. It was awe inspiring. I came home with a few new friends, several tools, and a whole lot of confidence."

  • Clearly defining and effectively communicating your value to the organization
