About JWLS

  • The Joint Women's Leadership Symposium (JWLS) is open to Active, Reserve and Retired Military service members from all service branches, DoD Civilians, the National Guard, NOAA and our international allies.

  • The Symposium is planned and executed by the Sea Service Leadership Association (SSLA).

  • The Symposium is the largest gathering of military women in the nation and has been recognized as the premier professional and personal development conference for women in the military.

  • The 32nd annual theme is "Building Bridges, Changing Culture," and will focus on the role of women at the forefront of the changing culture of the military through a series of panels, breakout workshops and keynote speakers.

JWLS Impact

In 2018, over 83 percent of the participants agreed that JWLS impacted their attitudes towards continuing their military service.

Before attending JWLS I was struggling with my place within my organization and if I wanted to continue my service.  After attending and hearing what some of these powerful, successful women had to say, it reminded me of my purpose and why I joined in the first place. - JWLS 2018 Attendee
