The Way Up

Developing Women Leaders to Enhance Iowa Higher Education

Welcome to The Way Up Conference

The 2021 The Way Up Conference has been scheduled.


For over thirty years, women in the State of Iowa have hosted The Way Up Conference to assist women in higher education institutions as they continue to develop their leadership and administrative skills and expertise. The conference has always been designed to provide value for presenters and participants as well as networking opportunities for all.

The Fall 2021 Conference will celebrate thirty-four years of growth, development and friendship.

The Theme for the 2021 conference is:  The Power of  Women on The Way Up: Not Done Yet! 


Consider joining us this year at The Way Up XXXIV Conference on November 4-5, 2021, at the Hyatt Regency Coralville Hotel and Conference Center, Coralville, Iowa.    (formerly the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Conference Center)
