Mini-Officer Women Leadership Symposium (Mini-OWLS) convenes women leaders in the military and veteran community, experts, innovators, and thought leaders to explore emerging trends, strengthen skills, and transform observations into actionable insights to lead positive change.  We are hosting a three-part OWLS series and events will be shorter in length and offer greater flexibility for you to engage virtually while accommodating in-person meeting and schedule constraints.

Women in Transition Career Coaching Workshops assist military women leaders in making successful career transitions.  The Career Workshops will offer exceptional opportunities to learn best practices and strategies from industry-leading career transition experts, as well as engage with top-tier, military friendly employers who value the leadership talents and professional acumen military women bring to the workplace.  For 2021, the Career Workshops will be held in collaboration with our eMentor Webinar Series.

eMentor Learning Labs Monthly Webinar Series is designed to provide expert guidance from our presenting partners on a range of personal and professional development topics to include: Next Level Leadership; Job Seekers; Federal Employment; Military Entrepreneur; and Health and Wellness. Participants may join eMentor to connect with a mentor or protege and engage with a broader community of support.

Distinguished Speakers Series (DSS) are short, deep-dive events that are held in partnership with institutions of higher learning and organizations committed to furthering critical thinking, innovative problem-solving, strong leadership, and the exploration of particularly important and timely topics related to women and girls.


If you are in the midst of career transition or considering a career change, please include your profile in the 2020 Professional Profile Directory (PPD). The PPD features the highly sought-after skills, talents and leadership competencies of current and former military officer women, senior enlisted women and degreed military spouses in career transition. This directory will be shared with AcademyWomen partners who may be able to facilitate hiring, a group that includes a wide array of top-caliber corporate, nonprofit and government entities.  If you would like to include your profile in the Directory, please do so by clicking here.

Due to current pandemic restrictions, these events will be hosted virtually in a way that enables participants to connect with one another and engage with speakers for inspiration, mentorship, and networking.
