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!


"As an attendee of the 5th Annual W.I.L.D. Conference, I was amazed at the number of professional women in attendance. The speakers were very high-energy and the exhibitors at the event represented a great mix of retail, wellness and professional services. One of the best parts of the event was the networking - I will definitely be back! "
