After last year’s hiatus and 2020 and 2021’s virtual conferences, many Latter-day Saint women are eager to join together again for BYU Women’s Conference. So when BYU excitedly posted a “save the date” message for the first in-person BYU Women’s Conference in three years, the elation on social media was palpable.

Jennefer Johnson, the program administrator for BYU Women’s Conference, told Church News that she and her team were so thrilled by the positive response. “We are so excited with the response from the sisters, realizing that they’re excited to return to campus and come back to women’s conference,” she said. “We want them to know that our focus will still be on building testimonies of the gospel and keeping our focus on our Savior and the love that Heavenly Father has for his daughters. ... We love gathering together, building friendships and strengthening our family relationships. We’re so happy to be back with the sisters on campus.”

The BYU Women’s Conference website lists the following schedule, with more details to come:

Wednesday, May 3
6–9 p.m. (Marriott Center sessions)

Thursday, May 4
9 a.m.–4 p.m. (Sessions)
4:30–7:30 p.m. (Evening of service)
8–9:30 p.m. (Deseret Book/Shadow Mountain Concert)

Friday, May 5
9 a.m.–5:30 p.m. (Sessions)

As part of the event, more than 150 presenters will speak on important and relevant topics, including womanhood, sisterhood, gospel principles, marriage, family, and more. Earlier this week BYU Women’s Conference shared that the keynote speakers for this year’s gathering include J. Anette Dennis, Kristin M. Yee, Irene Caso, Sheri Dew, and Camille N. Johnson.
