A year of planning for one extraordinary day.
As soon as the ICAN Women’s Leadership Conference wraps up, we begin planning for the next. Sometimes, the feedback from the conference leads to the theme for the following year. Other times, world events and business trends dictate the types of topics we should cover. We conduct in-depth research to bring you the most relevant knowledge and up-to-date best practices for your career and company.Learn More
