“There is always light, if only we are brave enough to see it. If only we are brave enough to be it.

~ Amanda Gorman

From challenge comes change. But how? Are we brave enough to see it and be it? Attendees to this year’s Women’s Conference will not only leave inspired to create the change they want to see in their communities and lives but will also be provided with actionable strategies to make it happen.

If we are going to ‘Choose to Challenge’ the social injustices we see in society, we must first challenge ourselves. Join us for an amazing discussion with speaker, award-winning speechwriter, and social impact warrior, Janet Stovall! Be prepared for an uncomfortable, but necessary, conversation that will propel us all in to action. You’ll connect with leaders, change agents and other impact-driven women to develop (or improve upon) a blueprint for successful change that can be implemented after the event.
