About this event
The Celebrating Women Conference will be VIRTUAL for 2021.
2021 marks the 4th annual Celebrating Women Conference and we are back with another fantastic line-up! While we are slowly transitioning back to in-person events our team has decided to keep a virtual format for this year’s CWC. We received fabulous feedback after the 2020 conference and learned that many of you actually enjoyed attending from the comfort of home! We enjoyed that attendees could access every single workshop through recordings and didn’t have to miss a minute of the event.
Like last year, we will live stream speakers as well as record their presentations. We have also added some pre-recorded sessions designed to help you dive deeper into the many dimensions of wellness.
The structure of the live-streamed event will be three breakout sessions in the morning followed by a 30-minute lunch break and then our Keynote Speaker – Dr. Susan Madsen! You may attend one live workshop per session.
That said, we can’t wait to connect with you face to face! We will use the feedback we’ve collected from previous years to deliver the conference bigger, better, and in-person in 2022.
