For 22 years the Bioneers conference has evolved as a hub of innovative leaders who gather across disciplines and sectors with practical solutions for the world’s most pressing human and ecological challenges. Each year the conference attracts 3,000 people in person, as well as an additional 9,000 through local, self-organized conferences nationwide. Within the annual conference, Moonrise highlights the ascendancy of women’s leadership and advances a framework that spans gender and racial justice with environment by featuring programming that focuses on the diverse landscape of women’s leadership and on priority questions and concerns for women.
