Earlier this year, it was announced annual Soirée Women’s Leadership Symposium will return for its sixth year on Thursday, May 2, at the Statehouse Convention Center in downtown Little Rock, its largest venue to date.

Beginning Jan. 1, registrants can be among the first to secure a spot at the professional development day by purchasing an early bird VIP ticket available through Feb. 29. These discounted tickets feature access to the exclusive VIP networking event before SWLS with wine, food and special guests. By registering early, guests also receive priority seating at the event, which includes a conference goodie bag, light breakfast, snacks and lunch.

The 2024 event will continue the symposium’s legacy of bringing leadership-focused opportunities to professionals in Arkansas. Presented by Delta Dental and The Hatcher Agency, the event allows guests to hear from industry experts, entrepreneurs, political leaders, C-suite executives and influencers from all backgrounds.

Keynote speakers, presenters and panelists will be announced in the coming weeks. Previous keynotes include Mia Hamm, Shiza Shahid, Randi Zuckerberg, Rebecca Minkoff and others.

"[We] are in the process of really digging into developing relevant, insightful breakout sessions with local leaders front and center," said Mandy Richardson, symposium founder and publisher of Little Rock Soirée magazine. "It's going to be another great day of networking and professional development, and we're thrilled to be able to welcome more women than ever to join us."

SWLS focuses on women in the workplace and allows a space for professionals to network, build skills, open conversations and collaborate in ways they may have never been able to. Attendees leave with fresh ideas and a renewed motivation to continue leading and empowering others from where they stand.
