WBA Women in Banking Conference

The 16th Annual WBA Women in Banking Conference will be held on Tuesday, April 26, 2022 at the Glacier Canyon Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells. The conference will kick off at 9:00 a.m. and adjourn at 3:15 p.m.

New for 2022: The conference will be hybrid! While the best networking experience will take place in person, if you prefer to attend from the comfort of your home or office, you can now join the conference virtually and tune in to see our live keynote speakers!

Conference Sessions Include:

  • Chasing The Bright Side: Why Optimism is The Secret Ingredient to Success – JESS ECKSTROM, Founder of Headbands of Hope
  • I Can. I Will. Watch Me. – ARIKA PIERCE, JD, President and Founder of Piercing Strategies
  • Leading With Your Heart – JULIE PETERSON KLEIN, Bell Bank
  • Peer Group Discussions and Networking

Each attendee, whether joining us in the Dells or from your desk via livestream will receive a copy of Jess Eckstrom’s book, Chasing the Bright Side: Embrace Optimism, Activate Your Purpose, and Write Your Own Story. A headband will also be donated to a local children’s hospital for each banker in attendance!
