Welcome to the Survey

Did you know that there has never been a comprehensive survey on professional women and conferences? How much we spend, what content is engaging, or how these events impact our careers. 

Conferences play a major role throughout one’s career, as they are a crucial source of networking, learning and training across every professional field.
 
We are looking for 1,000 professionals based in the US who identify as women, and are over the age of 21, to participate. On average, the survey takes an average of 15 minutes to complete (in some cases it has taken up to 20 minutes).

Data collected and associated findings will be used to understand women’s experiences at professional conferences. The data will allow us to evaluate the impact of professional conferences on persistent gender gaps within the workplace, so organizations like ours and the corporations we partner with are better able to meet the needs of women across the United States in gaining equity in professional settings.
 
All survey responses will be anonymous and confidential. If you would like to participate in the survey, you will be required to respond to a consent form on the next page before starting.
