Welcome to the Know Your Worth: Women's Leadership Conference website.

Because we share your aspirations for both personal fulfillment and opportunities to lead in the workplace and community, we've initiated the Know Your Worth: Women's Leadership Conference.

Our purpose with Know Your Worth is to provide a day and place for women of diverse backgrounds and career paths to network and learn from one another. Our vision is to create a culture of empowerment among the women of our state.

Your company benefits when you take time for professional development. Your community benefits when you have opportunities like this to learn and grow. Everyone benefits when young and emerging female leaders gain confidence, experience role models and connect with prospective mentors. 


Research shows that women, and especially women of color, are leading Kansas in starting new businesses. If you are one of these entrepreneurs, or if you work in a large company, in government or in the nonprofit sector, Know Your Worth is for you. Our goal is to build support systems we all need to achieve success.

Please explore this website.  Check out the different tracks. Register for the conference. Consider submitting a proposal to speak at the conference.  Or suggest a session topic and we'll do our best to find a presenter to meet your needs.


Know Your Worth is a work in progress, being planned by a small group of energetic women like you. There is a lot to do in the coming months. If you'd like to get more involved - either as a sponsor, a speaker or part of the conference committee - please contact us today. We know your worth and we'd love to have you help us make this conference a big success.
