Past year’s attendees described the conference as compelling and informative.
- Noticed amazing women…out there that are all working for the same cause. We have such a huge support system and we just have to use it.
- I absolutely loved… sessions on finance acumen, STEM experiences, racial justice, leadership, supporting other women, never being afraid to speak your truth and not to be afraid to use your “rage” to fight for what is right.
- It was very engaging and exciting. In each session I loved how detailed and actionable thecontent and the stories were…it made the conference much more inspiring”
- Fellow attendees made a networking sheet and a chat room where we could all connect with each other after the conference.
- It showed how confidence is a skill and it takes practice and the mindset of owning it.
- I’m so appreciative that you all gave me this opportunity. I will take what I have learned to be an advocate for those who need it so we achieve equality for all.
