Thank you for joining the 2021 Conference!

The Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs held the return of the Oregon Women Veterans Conference in a robust, virtual format that made the event even more accessible to women veterans in every corner of the state.

The one-day event took place on Saturday, May 22, 2021. Since 1998, this free biennial event has celebrated the contributions, diversity and strength of Oregon’s women veteran community, and is the largest gathering of women-identifying veterans in the state.

Women veterans make up one of the fastest-growing segments of the Oregon veteran community, with an estimated 25,000 women veterans living in the state today, representing nearly one-tenth of the overall veteran population.

This year’s virtual conference was presented using Whova, the award-winning event management platform that enabled ODVA to replicate major aspects of the in-person gathering in a safe, accessible and engaging manner.

The program included inspirational speakers, informative seminars and breakout sessions, and opportunities to network with other women veterans and receive direct assistance in accessing earned benefits and other resources.
