Innovation Women Celebrates Nine Years of Helping Professionals Secure the Spotlight 

On May 1, 2015, Innovation Women launched with a focus on tech and entrepreneurial women. Over the years, the mission has evolved to a much broader diversity mission, including other underrepresented voices. Nine years and thousands of thought leaders and visibility opportunities later, the organization continues to help those on their quest for:  

  • Pay equity  
  • Expert status  
  • Board seats  
  • Access to funding  
  • Overall business and career success 

“I started Innovation Women because of the lack of diverse voices at conferences. We offer speakers a community and the educational resources needed to be successful onstage and in professional settings,” said Bobbie Carlton, founder. 

Why public speaking? 

Public speaking boosts your brand, builds your reputation as an expert, and increases confidence. Innovation Women aims to change the statistics on conference speakers and contribute to the success of professionals.  

The organization provides members with educational resources, networking opportunities and promotional options for speakers at every level and is constantly growing and evolving. Just this year, nine new features were added to the platform. 

A visibility platform for professionals 

The self-service database is designed to provide a variety of visibility opportunities, including public speaking and media opportunities. These opportunities help professionals build their brands, grow their businesses and advance their careers.

Notable accomplishments and numbers include:  

  • 21,600 total calls for speakers 
  • 800+ opportunities currently listed 
  • 65,000+ social media followers 
  • 185 searchable industries  
  • 2,500+ current members
