Women’s Leadership Conference

Save the Date for the 2025 Women’s Leadership Conference Saturday, March 29, 2025

Adelphi’s annual Women’s Leadership Conference is a powerful day of learning and networking, where exceptional alumni and community members across industries share experiences and advice on how to thrive in today’s ever-changing world.

Participants Dared to Be Extraordinary with us on Saturday, March 9, 2024.

At Adelphi University’s premier Women’s Leadership Conference, on Saturday, March 9, 2024, more than 350 professionals, industry leaders, alumni, students, and community members came together for a day of influential connections, compelling discussions and development opportunities. The 2024 conference kicked off with Kendra Bracken-Ferguson, and the evening keynote speaker was Jennifer Hyman, Co-founder and CEO of Rent the Runway.

Professional Headshots

Throughout the Conference, there will be an opportunity to participate in ongoing Professional Headshots from 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Registration is not required. Those who took a professional headshot will receive their photos by the end of March.

Career Closet

Adelphi has started its very own Career Closet. The Career Closet is a new initiative that will be available for students who need professional work attire for interviews, conferences, and other professional opportunities. At this year’s conference, we collected over 160 donated items. For more information on what items are still needed and any requirements for donations please view the flyer.

Students who need to utilize the Career Closet can contact engage@adelphi.edu for the most up-to-date information.

The conference, co-hosted by Adelphi’s Advancement and External Relations and Office of Student Affairs, is open to the public as well as members of the Adelphi community including students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends of the University.

The Women's Leadership Conference is part of the Leadership Certificate Program for current Adelphi students.
