Conferences

Watermark delivers four key conferences each year – our full-day Watermark Conference for Women Silicon Valley and our Watermark Innovation Conference, Watermark Leadership Conference and Watermark Entrepreneur Conference. All are open to members and non-members, as well as to family members and friends. We love it when men attend our events, and if you have a son, daughter or other younger person in your life who would benefit from our conferences, bring them! We welcome everyone.

The inaugural Watermark Conference for Women Silicon Valley, originally referred to as the Lead On Conference, was held in February 2015. It was an enormous success, and we can't wait to see what our next conference holds! Mark your calendars: It's set for Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017, at the San Jose Convention Center. More details here.


Innovation is not just for designers and product people. All leaders need to be innovative, no matter their job or industry, to impact sales, culture and customer/partner responsiveness. Attend our Watermark Innovation Conference and learn how to drive innovation not only in products and services, but in all support functions including marketing, HR, finance, customer support and operations. See the agenda and speakers from our Jan. 29, 2016 event. Our next one is set for Friday, April 28, at Oracle in Santa Clara.


Our Watermark Leadership Conference is designed with the next generation of female talent in mind – recognized by their managers and peers as having high potential for advancement. We combine well-known, engaging and inspirational leadership speakers and panels and interactive sessions with seasoned executives and a special twist! We want to make this conference personalized, just for you. See the agenda and speakers from our July 22, 2016 event. Our next one will be held in July 2017 at Intuit in Mountain View.


Have a great idea you'd like to pursue on behalf of your employer – or for a company of your own? Then you've got the entrepreneurial spirit, no doubt about it. It's a drive and determination that pushes you to explore your passions, build something from the ground up and truly deliver something wonderful to the world. Sound familiar? Then don't miss our annual Watermark Entrepreneur Conference. We gather together some of the most inspirational entrepreneurial CEOs we know – many of whom have faced significant challenges, dusted themselves off when they've needed to and started again to achieve stellar success. They'll share their experiences, strategies, lessons learned and what's next on the horizon. See the agenda and speakers from the Oct. 6, 2016 event. Our next one will be held in October 2017 at Fenwick & West in Mountain View.
