Institutions on six continents have joined the WEW movement, and the list continues to grow. Learn more about the upcoming WEW events happening all across the world.



The Women Who Create Conference brings together women entrepreneurs, women business owners, aspiring entrepreneurs, and individuals of all genders who support women entrepreneurs for a full day of workshops and speakers aimed at growing their business. The Women Who Create Conference takes place at Iowa State University, hosted by the ISU Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship.

Registration information to come.


We invite the public to attend the SheTalks cocktail event supporting women + entrepreneurs.

Following the Women Who Create Conference, a community cocktail reception will kick-off showcasing six SheTalks presentations. What’s a SheTalk? Taken from the Japanese-inspired PechaKucha, it is a presentation style where each presenter shows 20 slides, each for 20 seconds. What makes it a SheTalk? All of the six speakers are women, and will be speaking around the theme ‘Women Who Create’. The event is hosted by the ISU Pappajohn Center for Entrepreneurship and sponsored by the ISU Debbie & Jerry Ivy College of Business.
