Conferences

Watermark delivers four key conferences each year – our annual Watermark Conference for Women Silicon Valley and our full-day Watermark Innovation Conference, Watermark Leadership Conference and Watermark Entrepreneur Conference. All are open to members and non-members, the general public. 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, featuring Hillary Rodham Clinton and Diane von Furstenburg. Since then, we've had Abby Wambach, Reese Witherspoon, Amal Clooney, Viola Davis, Sheryl Sandberg, Madeleine Albright and Condoleezza Rice! Mark your calendars: Our next conference is Feb. 22, 2019, at the San Jose Convention Center is SOLD OUT. Keynotes include: Serena Williams, Brene Brown and Gloria Steinem. More details here.
