  • Live-stream the BYU Women's Conference on Friday, May 1, at 10 a.m. MDT.

The 2020 BYU Women’s Conference, cosponsored by Brigham Young University and the Relief Society of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will be a digital-only event on May 1, 2020.

The annual conference has historically been considered one of the largest gatherings of Latter-day Saint women in the world. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the shortened digital conference will feature a live-streamed general session on Friday, May 1, from 10 a.m. to noon and four on-demand sessions.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Gather All Safely in Christ.” All women and men ages 16 and older are invited to participate.

General Session

The general session will include a message from Kate Holbrook, Church Historian, and a Sister to Sister question-and-answer conversation panel with Sisters Reyna I. Aburto, Becky Craven, and Lisa L. Harkness, who are in the General Presidencies of the Relief Society, Young Women, and Primary, respectively. Sister Tracy Browning, a member of the Relief Society General Board, will moderate the panel discussion.

Submit questions for the Sister to Sister event now through May 1.

Watch the live stream of the general session in English, Spanish, and Portuguese on Friday, May 1, at 10 a.m. mountain daylight time on broadcast.ChurchofJesusChrist.org, the Church of Jesus Christ YouTube channel, various General Officers’ social media channels, and the BYU Women's Conference website.

On-demand Sessions

The four additional 30-minute sessions will be made available on-demand on YouTube and the BYU Women's Conference website shortly following the broadcast and within 48 hours on broadcast.ChurchofJesusChrist.org. Speakers and topics are:

  • President Jean B. Bingham and Sister Sharon Eubank of the Relief Society General Presidency, “Gathering Together in the Latter-days”

  • Maria Luisa Torres and David Torres, “Taking Time to Talk: Communication in Marriage”

  • Rosemary Thackeray, “The Lord Knows You and is Aware of You”

  • Gaylamarie Rosenberg, “Gather to Be Perfected but Not Perfect”
