The mission of the Women in Leadership Development (WILD) Conference is to empower professional and enterprising women with knowledge, energy and passion. The WILD, founded in 2008 by the Gannon University SBDC, is a celebration that recognizes; supports and promotes women in business through women helping women. This concept of connectivity is achieved by encouraging networking, providing leadership opportunities and supporting each other. Knowledge, Energy and Passion – Go WILD!


"The W.I.L.D. Conference is an exceptional opportunity for women to network in an inspirational setting. The enthusiasm generated by the businesswomen and speakers is unmatched. You will expand your contacts, knowledge base and stimulate your creativity by attending the W.I.L.D. Conference. "
