This conference is a multi-generational movement of women committed to BLAZE a trail for each other. We are women who DARE to DREAM big, women who SERVE in our communities, women who walk in our PURPOSE, women who pause to understand the climate of our country and our world, women who fight for social injustices. Most importantly, we are women who hold various positions with the PASSION to continue to EVOLVE into the best versions of ourselves.
"The foundation of our conference is on the spiritual belief that wisdom comes in a multitude of counsel and iron sharpens iron. It is through the wisdom and stories of women that we gain strength to overcome adversity and impart CHANGE! "
