Gearing Up Conference

2023 Theme: Intersectionality in Leadership

Gearing Up 2023 Logo

Gearing Up is the Gloria Cordes Larson Center for Women and Business' premier annual conference at Bentley University. The transformational day reinvigorates the leadership aspirations of women, gender diverse professionals, and allies in their early and mid-careers across industries to harness their skills and ambitions and to realize their full potential.​

This inspirational day provides participants with resources to thrive professionally and personally with opportunities for self-reflection, group exploration, and interactive learning. Gearing Up's impact extends beyond the one-day event through goal-setting activities to encourage continued learning and development. Our empowering program fosters meaningful connections by cultivating a community of professionals across industries and the Bentley community that serves as a pillar to further grow diverse professional networks. Our inclusive program expands from diversity, equity, and inclusion into justice as a business imperative. DEI&J is taking root, and we invite thought leaders from various industries to join our efforts.
