Women in Public Power

February 8 — 9, 2023
Renaissance Reno Downtown Resort and Spa

Who Should Attend:

Any woman working in public power.

Conference Overview:

After a three-year hiatus, it’s back! This year’s WIPP conference continues the tradition of honoring issues specific to women from all areas and levels within the public power industry. It is a place for leaders at all levels—whether you are a customer/member service representative, director/commissioner, meter reader, CEO, accountant, purchaser, or any other employee—to network and learn from one another. Sessions will address the challenges women face in the workforce, why it’s important to understand how important it is to align self with the work you do, the power of collaboration, and the transformative power of inclusion. The conference also features a strong focus on public power; panelists will share their insights on current issues the industry is facing.

We are asking everyone to do their part. NWPPA and local venues will follow applicable federal, state, and local health protocols. Assumption of Risk: COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic by the World Health Organization. It is not possible for NWPPA or anyone else to completely prevent the presence of the disease.
