(ALL TIMES LISTED ARE EST)

 

The 2021 mini-Officer Women Leadership Symposium (mini-OWLS) will be hosted VIRTUALLY.

  

The mini-OWLS provides military women from around the world with opportunities to connect with like-minded colleagues and to grow professionally and personally through keynote messages, workshops and panel discussions.  

 

Our overarching theme for the mini-OWLS - Reimagining Meaningful Leadership - will focus on how leaders, and the skill-sets required of them, are evolving rapidly to address new challenges and issues we face as individuals, communities, and as a nation in these unprecedented times.  No matter our stage of professional growth or experience level, continuously developing our leadership talents in order to meaningfully impact self, others, and organizations, is essential to cultivating innovative solutions and ethically-driven change in these demanding times.  Please plan to join us!

 

PERMISSIVE TDY OR TAD

For guidance on attending the virtual mini-OWLS using permissive TDY or TAD, please visit the MilitaryOWLS Event FAQs for more details. 

 

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE DIRECTORY

As part of the mini-OWLS, AcademyWomen is providing the opportunity for event participants to include their profiles in the 2021 Professional Profile Directory (PPD). The Professional Profile Directory features the highly sought-after skills, talents and leadership competencies of military women in career transition.  This resource will be especially helpful if you are considering, or are in the midst of, career transition.  The PPD will be shared with AcademyWomen partners who may be able to facilitate hiring, a group that includes a wide array of top-caliber corporate, nonprofit and government entities. Not able to attend the events?  If you are a military officer woman, senior enlisted woman or a degreed military spouse in career transition, you can still include your information in the Professional Profile Directory.  For more information, visit the PPD here.

 

ACCESS TO SESSION RECORDINGS

As a paid registrant, if you are unable to attend the event synchronously during the scheduled time, you will still be able to access the session recordings that will be made available soon after the event.
