Officer Women Leadership Symposium (OWLS)

24-25 April 2019 | Arlington, VA

The Officer Women Leadership Symposium (OWLS)provides military women the opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues and to grow professionally and personally through keynote messages, workshops and panel discussions. Our distinguished speakers are leaders from the military, public and private sectors who offer their support and personal advice. Participants will have tremendous opportunities for mentorship, while connecting with veteran and current military women at every level of leadership and from every military branch of service.

Veteran and current military officer and senior enlisted women (E7+), women officers-in-training, and all supporters of the OWLS are encouraged to attend.

OWLS Talks Call for Submissions

Submit Your Proposal by 22 Feb 2019

CALLING ALL TED TALK WANNABES!

We have a forum for YOU … Back by popular demand, the OWLS Talks will be taking place again during the 2019 event! If TED Talks are ideas worth spreading … then OWLS Talks are experiences worth sharing. We are calling for submissions from passionate, polished, out-of-the-box thinkers to speak for 5 minutes in front of an audience of fellow military members on a topic of your choosing that you feel should be addressed at the 2019 OWLS. Your topic can cover any issue or perspective that you believe needs to be given a voice; however, it should be non-partisan and non-service branch specific. In keeping with the theme for the 2019 OWLS: Leading Innovation & Change in the New Era … now is the chance to inspire innovative thinking in others through your voice … and you never know where the ideas sparked by your discussion may lead!

To apply please send the following via email to OWLSTalkVideos@gmail.com NLT 22 February 2019:

  • An outline of your proposed speaking topic
  • Your biography with photo (military or similar)
  • A one minute video pitching your topic

Finalists will be notified by March 11th.
