Women Ignite is an organization of leaders who are driven to help humans succeed professionally and personally. WI (pronounced “we”) links arms with women, men, and organizations who want to collaborate to create audacious achievement, service minded leaders, and equality for all.

WI has 12 members on our Idaho team, all bringing their unique expertise and strengths to the movement. All our initiatives and events have three pillars: education, inspiration and collaboration. We serve about 75 percent women currently and 25 percent men. We have co-ed involvement inside of just about everything we do.

Whether you work in a corporate position, own a company or have a cause, we bring strategies, stories and solutions to help you expand your capacity, and help individuals and teams live business and life on purpose.

WI believes in serving more than we take, not just at events, but as a way of life. We don’t want to build walls, perpetuating the tired cycle where women are in one room, men in another, young professionals in another, and so on. We believe in an intergenerational room of humans, with every color and belief, every marital status, from every or no political side.. You won’t be party shamed at our shared experiences. We celebrate diversity, and we welcome it.

WI is “The What’s Next” in human development with:

WICON, our annual flagship conference.

WILift, our co-ed networking Initiative.

WIMasterminds, the power of the collective in 90-day, professionally coached, confidential small groups.

WICoaching our certified professional Business and Life coaches.

Young adult events, WIExecs for big challenges, and bigger opportunities.

WI believes that old rhetoric deserves to retire, as new languaging, philosophies and strategies flood our businesses, our causes and our lives.

We are WI International, founded and based in Boise. And if you resonate with this (because not all will), we truly would love to collaborate to make the planet better ... with you.

WI’s flagship conference

WICON2018 is Friday and Saturday, Oct. 26-27, at the Boise Centre.

This year’s featured speaker is Jen Welter. Before becoming a linebackers coach for the Arizona Cardinals in 2015, she became the first woman to play running back in a men’s professional football league with the Texas Revolution in 2014. Then the following season, the Revolution hired her as a coach, marking her as the first female coach in men’s professional football.

WICON is presented by MaxGiving Amherst Madison Real Estate and ICCU. A ticket for both days costs $200 plus a $5.95 processing fee.
