The Way Up

Developing Women Leaders to Enhance Iowa Higher Education

Welcome to The Way Up Conference

The 2023 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 2023 Conference will celebrate thirty-six years of growth, development and friendship.

The Theme for the 2023 conference is: Thriving Together in a Landscape of Change


Consider joining us this year at The Way Up XXXVI Conference on November 2-3, 2023, at the Hilton Des Moines Downtown Conference Center, Des Moines, Iowa.
