Please check back often, as we continue to develop resources, content and connections to fulfill our mission of building a community of women who encourage and support each other both professionally and personally.

Professional Development Day Attendee: As far as feedback, I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed the interactiveness that the group had!  I loved hearing from other women as the presentations related to them.  I felt that it made for easy interactions during the breaks  because we could easily find something to communicate about!  I thought that all of the speakers had great content and a great message. Everything was very comfortable and you created an environment where everyone felt safe to share their own insights! You have a gift for bringing great women together!
