2018 Events

Montclair State University will hold two WEW events in 2018: An all-day conference and an evening event. Both events are free and open to the public.

Wednesday, October 17

  • WEW Conference
  • 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
  • University Hall Conference Center, Montclair State

A day of inspiration and motivation for female founders, aspiring entrepreneurs, corporate women, millennials, students and anyone who wants to take a risk and launch a new venture. Last year, more than 400 people (mostly women) attended the conference, and the event offers some of the best networking in New Jersey!
