2023 BYU Women’s Conference adds Wednesday evening session


Thousands of women are gathering on BYU campus for the 2023 BYU Women’s Conference, taking place May 3 to May 5.

The Relief Society organization normally co-sponsors this event, but this year, BYU Women’s Conference is being organized by BYU’s Continuing Education department.

While previous conferences have only lasted for two days, this year’s conference is three days long. The conference organizers added a Wednesday evening session beginning at 6 p.m.

With the addition of the Wednesday night session, five keynote speakers will address the attendees. Sisters J. Anette Dennis and Kristin M. Yee, counselors in the Relief Society general presidency will speak Wednesday night, Irene Caso will speak Thursday morning, Sheri L. Dew will speak Friday morning and Relief Society General President Camille N. Johnson will speak Friday afternoon.

More than 150 speakers will address conference attendees across BYU campus, highlighting topics such as charity, temple worship, family and parenting, faith and worshiping Jesus Christ. On Thursday evening after the speakers have concluded, the Evening of Service will begin in the Richards Building and the Smith Fieldhouse at 4:30 p.m. where attendees can help “complete a variety of projects for members of our community in need.”

At the conclusion of the Evening of Service at 7:30, the Marriott Center will host An Evening of Entertainment at 8 p.m., which will feature music from Latter-day Saint artists, including Calee Reed, the Truman Brothers, Nathan Pacheco, Simply Three and the Bonner Family.

Online registration has closed, but men and women over 16 years old that are still interested in attending can purchase tickets in the Harman Continuing Education Building lobby or at the Marriott Center’s northeast and northwest concourse entrances from May 3 to May 5. Housing is available for those desiring to stay on campus while attending the conference.
