Attending the Az. Women's Conference the past 3 years has been both informative and empowering. The break-out sessions include current, thought-provoking topics and presenters. Most of all, exposure to open minded women who want to expand their minds and sense of awareness contributes to a wonderful, stimulating sense of camaraderie.
I attended the Arizona Women's Conference this year and was overwhelmed with how well the event was organized, the quality of the speakers and options for learning. Even the vendor event was great because it was held mostly over our long lunch hour, which didn't detract from the rest of the conference. I learned so much from this conference from "My purpose for this day is ______________" and other inspiring quotes to sex trafficking brings in more money than the NFL, MLB, and NBA COMBINED. I will not miss this conference again.
The Fourth Annual Women’s Conference was the first I had attended in Arizona. It was really well planned, managed, and implemented! It was a pleasure to have so many workshop choices, the keynote speaker was inspiring, and the day was perfect in terms of length. In my past life I had attended many women’s conferences in the SF Bay Area, but it had been a long time. This one, held at Scottsdale Community College was every bit on a par with those I had attended years ago. Thank you! I am looking forward to celebrating the Fifth Anniversary next year.
