PennWomen App FAQ

How do I download the app?

Just search “Penn Women” in your app store, or use the appropriate download link below.

Download now on the App Store  Get it now on Google Play     

What if I already have the app from the 2017 Conference?

iOS users only need to update their old PennWomen app. If you are on an Android, please delete and re-download. If anyone has trouble, we recommend simply deleting the old and downloading the new!

How do I log in?

Tap “Sign In” banner on the home screen. 

How do I create a profile?

Once you’ve logged in by providing your email address, you can customize your profile by tapping “my profile” under the “Connect” heading at the top. Fill in as little or as much info as you’d like. Be sure to allow your profile to be seen in the directory listing so other attendees can find you! 

How do I create My Schedule?

You can only create a schedule if you’ve logged in and have finished a profile. Once this is done, simply open the session you’d like to add to your schedule from the AGENDA screen, and then click “Add to Agenda.”

How do I view my schedule after I’ve added sessions?

You can access your schedule from the “My Schedule” icon on the home screen, or from the “My Schedule” icon on the Connect screen. 

If I add sessions to my personal schedule on the app, does that mean I’m guaranteed space in that session?

NO. We do not require or allow attendees to reserve space in any session. Creating a schedule on the app simply allows you to better plan out your busy day. You are not guaranteed space in a session when you add it to your schedule on the app.

How can I connect with a specific attendee?

Simply tap the “Connect” tab on the top right hand corner of the home screen, then click on “Attendees.” You can search attendees by name, company, or title. You can also send a direct message, or add them as a contact. Your contact list can also be found in the “Connect” menu. 

What if I have more questions about the app?

Within the Attendees section, send a direct message to Danielle Leshinski.

2016 Attendees: Plan Your Day!

Pennsylvania Conference For Women

First, thank you to our 2016 sponsors!

Their commitment to moving the needle for women in the workplace is what makes this incredible day possible. We encourage you to get to know the companies supporting the Pennsylvania Conference for Women.


Help in Planning Your Day

As you think about what you’d like to get out of conference day, we encourage you to browse our online agenda as well as download our NEW app, which is updated regularly and allows you to save your favorite events to a private, personal schedule. (If you have last year’s app, please delete it and search “PennWomen” for the latest version!)

The quantity of offerings can be overwhelming, so we’re holding two short morning workshops on “Maximizing Your Conference Day” (7:40-8:00 am & 8:00-8:20 am in the new Tierney Social Hub).


What to Expect

The Conference is anchored by two powerful keynote sessions – one in the morning and one over lunch; three different hour-long breakout sessions (identify your preferred sessions in advance to save time); and multiple small business and social media roundtables in the afternoon. But that’s not nearly all!

Enter the Exhibit Hall and you’ll find the Beneficial Knowledge Bank Pavilion, Drexel LeBow Career Pavilion, a new Women-Owned Business Marketplace, Tierney Social Hub, AmerisourceBergen Community Connection Pavilion and the always-popular Health & Wellness Pavilion. Read on to learn more about what each has to offer.


Beneficial Knowledge Bank Pavilion

In addition to housing the Conference Bookstore and author book signings, the Beneficial Knowledge Bank Pavilion offers several “Learning Bursts” designed to cover everything from balancing your personal and professional lives to stress relief techniques. (11:00 am – 4:00 pm)

Be sure to visit the Beneficial Bank interactive exhibit to dive deep into your “Philosophy of Money.”


Drexel LeBow Career Pavilion

The Career Pavilion provides you with intimate and unique opportunities to best position yourself on the job, enhance your career skills and network with peers.

You’ll want to bring your current resume for free critique, and organize your thoughts in advance for a free one-on-one coaching session with a coach from Drexel LeBow or the International Coach Federation Philadelphia chapter. In addition, some of our sponsors will be on site recruiting.

Attend workshops led by Drexel LeBow School of Business staff throughout the day.


Women-Owned Business Marketplace

Come take advantage of the many opportunities available to grow and manage your small business in the Women-Owned Business Marketplace, plus support other women-owned small businesses by shopping the exhibits!

From 3:00 – 4:40 pm, join one of several Small Business Roundtables for an intimate unscripted talk led by an expert facilitator.

And don’t miss the QVC + zulily Product Search, happening from 7:30 am-5:00 pm. Watch dozens of entrepreneurs pitch their products and receive instant feedback from an expert panel of hosts and buyers from QVC and zulily. All presenter slots are currently filled, but you may join the waiting list by stopping by QVC’s booth (#257) in the morning.


Tierney Social Hub

The perfect spot to connect and recharge! Chat one-on-one with social media and digital experts about how to up your game on LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and more. Bring your bestie, co-worker, boss, mentor or business partner to the #MoreThanMySelfie booth for the perfect pic that gets all the “likes.” Power up at a charging station before you leave and stay connected with @PennWomen.


AmerisourceBergen Community Connection Pavilion

Help assemble 2,000 personal care bags that will be donated to the Salvation Army Eliza Shirley House. Founded more than 150 years ago, the Eliza Shirley House provides emergency housing for women and children fighting homelessness throughout Philadelphia.

Be sure to visit all the local nonprofit booths in this pavilion, and stop by AARP to inquire about volunteer opportunities…and free headshots!


Health & Wellness Pavilion

Stop by the Health and Wellness Pavilion to catch one of several mini-workshops led by wellness and nutrition experts throughout the day. Topics range from healthy eating to how to avoid sitting all day at work.


Share the Love

Beneficial Bank will be collecting new and gently used children’s books to support Philadelphia READS, a resource for educators who serve our city’s children and youth. Books should be for children ages pre-K-12th grade and can be dropped off at the Beneficial Foundation Community Tree in the Exhibit Hall.

Now’s also a great time to take a look through your closet (or go shopping!) for the QVC & Career Wardrobe Handbag and Accessory Drive. The morning of the conference, bring your new or gently used handbags, jewelry, scarves and briefcases, plus unused hosiery and unopened cosmetics to the specially-marked bin next to the registration area.
