Conferences

Watermark delivers four key conferences each year – our annual Watermark Conference for Women Silicon Valley and our half-day Watermark Innovation Conference, Watermark Leadership Conference and Watermark Entrepreneur Conference. All are open to members and non-members, women and men and non-binary, all functions and all industries. 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 Gloria Steinem, Serena Williams, Brene Brown, Abby Wambach, Reese Witherspoon, Amal Clooney, Viola Davis, Sheryl Sandberg, Madeleine Albright and Condoleezza Rice! Mark your calendars: Our next conference and workplace summit is on February 11 and 12, 2020, at the San Jose Convention Center. For more details here.

ENTREPRENEUR MONTH

Our Entrepreneur Month focuses on women with an entrepreneurial spirit, CEOs, founders and co-founders. Entrepreneur program this year. In an effort to bring programming to our Entrepreneur members throughout the year, there has been a strategic decision to shift from a full-day program to quarterly programming with the launch of our new Entrepreneur Mastermind Group. This is a group of professional women who are the CEOs and/or founders and co-founders of companies and viewed as leaders in their communities. They are at various stages from pre-launch, through funding series A & B, as well as pre-IPO. These quarterly self-facilitated sessions launch 10/15/19, repeating in January, April, July and October. The group gathers to discuss challenges, successes and support one another, following a Mastermind format or Jeffersonian Salon. This will allow for greater impact and resources for Entrepreneurs to grow their companies. REGISTER HERE FOR THE ENTREPRENEUR MASTERMIND GROUP

The Mastermind Group is paired with a Speaker Series with the foremost thought-leaders, VCs, and successful serial-preneurs to bring you a robust and comprehensive program. Register HERE
