About

The 11th Annual ORLANDO WOMEN’S CONFERENCE, scheduled
for Tuesday, September 14, 2021, at the DR. PHILLIPS CENTER FOR
THE PERFORMING ARTS, is a one-day program built around the
concept of growing and nurturing women leaders. ORANGE APPEAL
has been an ardent supporter of women since launching in 2008 and
as a direct outreach, an annual women’s conference was established.

Although last year’s event went virtual, attendees included more than
350 professionals, community leaders and business owners. The 2021
conference will feature dozens of speakers in a variety of sessions. As
always, we are encouraging women to take a day for themselves, and
expand their horizons with personal and professional development
sessions. Based on pandemic guidlelines, we plan to limit live
attendance and offer a virtual component.

There will be THREE DISTINCT KEYNOTE ADDRESSES — morning
opening, luncheon and afternoon. These prominent local women
will deliver inspiring and uplifting messages. Topics for the day will
include relevant issues, challenges and opportunities for women to
come together and lead. The day will end with a reception to honor
ORANGE APPEAL’S 2021 WOMEN OF THE YEAR.

An EXHIBIT MARKETPLACE will be back offering attendees
an opportunity to see what’s new in everything from beauty and
healthcare to education and self-improvement. But there will be
a dose fun too, with clothing and jewelry vendors as well as prize
drawings and specialty demonstrations.

ORANGE APPEAL will be featuring programming content as well
as information on our speakers and sponsors in the SEP/OCT
issue. We will be working with a committee of women from across
Central Florida to fully develop the day. THE ORLANDO WOMEN’S
CONFERENCE provides a forum for important women’s and
community issues.
