Described as “a gathering for creative, entrepreneurial women who desire to ignite passion and bring goodness to the world through everyday living,” The Yellow Conference aims to inspire attendees by connecting them with people who are making a difference in the world. There are two options: You can purchase a two-day pass for the conference, which include two full days of speakers, panels and interactive activities, the chance to network with over 500 attendees, and an attendee dinner party. The three-day pass includes a third full day of workshops to help you dive deeper into practical knowledge that relates specifically to your type of business. You’ll attend smaller workshops in one of four tracks: The Leader, The Activist, The Solopreneur or The Starter. Keynote speakers include successful women from both the for-profit and nonprofit worlds, including Kirsten Dickerson of Raven + Lily and writer, speaker and activist Alexis Jones.

The Women’s Entrepreneur Festival (WEFestival) was originally launched by a female angel investor and a woman technologist, and had a focus on women entrepreneurs in technology. However, the event has since grown to include diverse women entrepreneurs in a wide variety of industries. The goal of WEFestival is to help encourage women who are in the trenches of building their businesses by providing a comfortable and inspiring environment to facilitate learning and sharing advice. The event attracts both women entrepreneurs and women investors, and includes panel discussions, keynote speakers, networking opportunities and more. There’s even a Slack group you can join that stays connected all year long. While the details of the upcoming event are still being finalized, speakers at past WEFestivals have included Arianna Huffington, Diane von Furstenberg and Anne Marie Slaughter, making it one of the most impressive conferences for women entrepreneurs.
