WIPP Annual Leadership Meeting


October 3-4, 2017, The Mayflower Hotel, Washington, DC



Women Impacting Public Policy will be hosting its Annual Meeting on October 3-4, 2017 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC to ensure policymakers, experts, and the media hear directly from women business owners about what they need to thrive.
This year the highlights of our two-day conference will include:

  • A reception and awards dinner at the Mayflower Hotel--JJ Ramberg, host of MSNBC's Your Business, has been invited--on October 3
  • A key note address by Jennifer Lawless, Director of the Women & Politics Institute at American University’s School of Public Affairs on October 4
  • Media and leadership training opportunities on October 4
  • A catered lunch in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill--Senator Joni Ernst and SBA Administrator Linda McMahon has been invited--on October 4
  • Hill visits on October 4


Our annual event is a chance to learn valuable skills, advocate for issues that matter the most to women entrepreneurs and meet like-minded people. Please join us and make your voice heard!




Do you know a woman who is deserving of recognition for their dedication to the advancement of women in business, and who exemplifies WIPP’s mission of educating and advocating on behalf of female entrepreneurs? 

If so, we hope you will nominate her for one of the awards. Award winners will be honored during the WIPP Annual Leadership Meeting. You may nominate yourself or someone else.  Nominations are due by September 8.
