2024 Virginia Network Annual State Conference


Submit session proposals here. Submissions are due Wednesday, April 10, 2024 at 5:00 pm ET


Each year the Virginia Network sponsors a statewide conference serving women in a wide range of roles in higher education, including graduate students. The annual conference is designed for women who serve the varied and diverse institutions and agencies of higher education in the Commonwealth and provides opportunities for networking, collaboration, and sharing information about the national, state, and regional issues affecting higher education today. The Network has been particularly interested in identifying and developing the careers of women from diverse backgrounds; therefore every three years the annual conference focuses on critical issues for women of color.
