About The Event
Interact. Invest. Reset.
Please join the Women of Hopkins group and the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association to celebrate this 10 year milestone and Women's History Month, throughout the month of March, 2022 with our Annual Women’s Leadership Conference, "Community, Connection and Courage: How To Thrive In Challenging Times".
The shifting landscape of the pandemic and university restrictions will sadly not allow us to be together this year but we are thrilled to be able to come together to celebrate virtually, with interactive workshops and programs for professional and personal growth and development and to broaden your network. The conference will end with a dynamic Keynote Discussion with alum Eva Chen '01, author, Director of Fashion Partnerships, Instagram. (@evachen212)

Do I have to register for the entire conference?
With this new and innovative conference delivery, individuals are able to register for any open sessions offered as they are interested in participating. Individuals may register for one or all open sessions offered.
How do I register for the conference? Can I register over the phone, or do I have to register online?
Registration links can be found on the Women of Hopkins Web Site, in the registration section. Currently due to COVID-19 and remote work, all registrations must be made online. The Office of Alumni Relations is unable to process registrations by phone or mail.
When is the deadline to register?
Individuals can register for open sessions up to 48 hours before the start time for the session. Registrations received after that time cannot be guaranteed, as platform links will be sent by individual session.
When is the deadline to cancel my registration?
Individuals can cancel their registration up to two working days before the first registered event. Cancellations after that date will not be eligible for refunds.
May I receive a refund if I cancel my registration?
Refunds will be given to those who cancel their registration no later than two working days before the first registered event. Given the unpredictable circumstances due to COVID-19, the Office of Alumni Relations will work with you regarding refunds and cancellations in extreme situations. Please contact Thomas Outlen, Affinity Engagement, at Alumni Events with questions.
How do I change my registration selections?
Registration selections can be made up to two working days before the first registered event. Please contact Thomas Outlen, Affinity Engagement, at Alumni Events with questions.
Will there be technical support for the sessions?
The Office of Alumni Relations will do its best to assist you with basic technical issues and troubleshooting and the receipt of platform links, but will not be able to offer any high level individual technical support.
Will the conference sessions be recorded and shared?
Most conference sessions will be recorded and individuals will receive the recordings of the sessions they registered for. With the purchase of the third registration option, you will receive links to a virtual library of all recorded sessions (even those you did not participate in) shortly after the conclusion of the conference. All recordings will eventually be posted on the Alumni Association You Tube channel at a later date.
