Annual Women in Conservation Leadership Summit

First Annual WCR Summit: March 17-19, 2016
National Conservation Training Center, Shepherdstown, WV

Second Annual WCL Summit: March 13-15, 2018
Hyatt Regency Chesapeake, Cambridge, MD


In March 2017 the National Wildlife Federation hosted the first ever Women in Conservation Leadership Summit, bringing together almost 200 women from across the Federation family, including from our affiliate organizations, staff and Board members. The Summit was a resounding success with compelling sessions on women’s empowerment, skills and approaches for supporting women’s leadership, understanding the barriers and opportunities for building women’s leadership, and individual and group commitments to take action.

While the 2017 Summit included attendees from NWF internal staff, affiliate organizations, and board members, in 2018 we are pleased to open the Summit to any woman working in the conservation field.

The 2018 Women in Conservation Leadership Summit will foster, empower, and develop women leaders within the conservation community. The 2018 Summit will take place March 13-15th at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay in Cambridge, Maryland.
