Why Should You Attend?
Leadership Convention is the ultimate event for anyone wanting to immerse themselves in talks from top API leaders. Read on to learn more about benefits for attendees and sponsors.
Open to all leadership levels
There shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all approach to leadership. Regardless of your experience level, our programming is tailored to suit seasoned, brand new, and even, “maybe in the future” leaders.
Go beyond your own expertise
Our lineup features API speakers from all different backgrounds. Not only will you learn about professional development or career advancement, but we’ll also dive into topics around DEI, civic engagement, LGBTQA+, working with disabilities, and more.
Get a motivation boost
Learn how to train future leaders
Hear experts give examples of ways to help your team develop leadership skills, giving them the confidence to delegate, coach, and even hold people accountable.
Incredible networking and social events
Remote work has kept many of us at home, and although virtual happy hours are nice, there’s no substitute for meeting people in person. We’re excited to welcome everyone back this year to make new connections and catch up with peers.
