What people are saying about Conversations...

I liked how ‘real’ the discussions were from each panelist. It was extremely genuine and almost felt like a fireside chat with good friends…and wine!

~ Jenni Jones

I loved hearing the stories of the women on the panel. They were delightfully candid in telling their stories and sharing observations about women in the workplace.

~ Sally Elesby

I describe these events as eye-opening. They are a celebration of the strength, resilience, integrity, humor and care of each of the women who participate.

Awesome event! The ladies were inspiring and motivating! Looking forward to the next event!
