Recap of the World Leadership Conference in Houston

The 2017 IWF World Leadership Conference took place in Houston, Texas from 25 October to 27 October. Over 900 women from more than 30 countries and more than 60 forums attended the two day conference packed with inspiration and thought-provoking discourse.
From the main stage remarks of Former Houston Mayor and Conference Co-Chair Annise Parker about the future of cities, to Ellen Ochoa, Astronaut and Director of the Johnson Space Center about the future of space, to the Ideas Remaking the World, our members and their formidable talents and accomplishments were the highlights of the plenary sessions.

This year the IWF tried new programming, with a very successful town hall on Human Trafficking, and enjoyed diverse behind the scenes including an amazing tour of the Johnson Space Center.
The conference was closed with a spectacular gala honoring nine Women Who Make a Difference and Hillary Clinton, who became the newest member of the IWF Hall of Fame. For the first time ever, IWF live-streamed the Hall of Fame induction.
