Speaking Opportunities

No matter where an Attendee is in their education or career, attending a WE Local conference is known to be the best way to connect with- and -be inspired by other engineers and technologists close to home.  WE Local offers two opportunities to speak at each conference which include:

  • Keynote Speakers
  • Breakout Session Speakers

Speak at WE Local

Keynote Speakers 

As a Keynote, you will deliver thought-provoking and motivational content that draws from personal experience. The most successful Keynote Speakers are those who are authentic and engage with the audience.

For an example of a past successful and highly rated Keynote Speaker, view Dr. Sonia Rocha-Sanchez’s Keynote online. View the 2021 WE Local Keynote Speaker Summary for more information.

Due to the hyper local atmosphere, WE Local seeks Keynote Speakers who live in-, are from-, or do business in the city and state of each conference.
