"In my life, there's a marked 'before Yellow Conference' and 'after Yellow Conference' "

ABOUT THE EVENT

We believe work isn't a career. It's how you find and create meaning in this world.

Coming from a variety of disciplines, 500 women gather together from all over the world every year at Yellow Conference to learn from social good trailblazers, connect with like-minded, innovative women and most importantly, connect with themselves and their unique purpose in the world. 2019 will mark our 6th Annual Conference in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. We can't wait!


WHO THIS IS FOR

Sounds like fun, but is this for me?

This is an event for women with big dreams and even bigger hearts.  

If you're on a journey to align who you are with the work that you do, if you're looking to build something that goes deeper than a career, if you have a desire to make an impact for good on the world through your work, if you're trying to figure out what it is you value and how to articulate your vision, if "success" looks different to you than a paycheck or a following on Instagram, if you've found yourself wondering how to find fulfilment and joy in your day to day work, if you've been searching for an inclusive and supportive community of women who don't compete with, but support each other- The Yellow Conference is for you.  

Learn from leaders in the social good space who have aligned who they are with the work that they do and are creating waves of good echoing throughout the world. 

We're not kidding when we say The Yellow Conference changes people's lives. Come to experience a conference with a conscience you'll forever hold close to your heart.  


WORDS FROM OUR ATTENDEES 

"No workshop, conference, event or coaching session has ever impacted me the way my 2 days at Yellow did." 

"A truly spiritual experience."  

"The speakers, the leadership, the community - it is a treasure." 

"I attended the first Yellow Conference and in the past six years it was the best thing I have done for myself and for my business."


THIS YEAR AT YELLOW, WE'RE FEATURING...

ETHICALLY CURATED GOODIE BAG This isn't just any conference goodie bag, this is a bag filled with world changing products. We take what brands we put in front of you very seriously, and bring each brand through our own curation processs before putting them in front of you. Everything down to the bag the products are held in, is making an impact for good. We've been able to provide work for hundreds of women across the globe through our goodie bag alone.

MOTHERS ROOM Welcome all mamas! This year we have a room just for you. A space for both current and curious mamas to rest and relax amongst Yellow-approved products, snacks and experiences created with you in mind. A space to pump, nurse (newborns are welcome!), and breathe.

THE WELLNESS LOFT Two days of conferencing is no joke! Lucky for you we have a variety of wellness experiences curated with the Yellow Attendee in mind. Sit back and take a breather, get some work done, or join us for a sound bath amidst the noise of the conference. Pamper your outer self while you connect with your inner self.

A COMMUNITY OF WOMEN WORKING FOR GOOD We always say the best thing about Yellow is the women who are a part of this community. From women running small do-good businesses, to women running large scale social enterprises and non-profits, to creatives and artists to mothers and teachers. What brings together the women in the Yellow community is their commitment to aligning their heart with their work, and in doing so, making the world a better place. Connect with these amazing women at Yellow!

OUR 2019 THEME: ALIGN •• We at Yellow believe that work isn’t a career, it’s how you find and make meaning in this world. Our work should be an expression of who we are, what we value and what we care about. What we do for work takes up the majority of our day- and when what we do is out of line with who we are, we feel that disconnection on a soul level. Our theme for this year’s Yellow Conference is addressing this concept. How can we take our work, our businesses, our actions, our relationships, and better ALIGN them with our values, what we care about, and who we are? The 2019 theme for Yellow Conference: ALIGN.
