What our sponsors are saying


I felt like the speakers were giving me individualized advice on my career.


The talks truly pinpointed some of my insecurities in the field and guided me on how to confront, rationalize, and overcome them.


This was easily the most beneficial conference I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending. I walked away feeling charged and inspired.


Watermark has been an invaluable partner to VMware, collaborating with us to provide programming to advocate for women in leadership positions. ...

I thoroughly enjoy all of my engagements with the supportive Watermark community and look forward to continuing to meet people who are as passionate about helping other women as I am.
