2016 Modern Day Woman's Conference: The Road to 2020

The Modern Day Woman’s Conference, now in its third year, celebrates the advancement and self‐empowerment of young women, and seeks to enlighten them to utilize their incredible education, resources and strengths to have an even greater effect on the world. This year's conference, "The Road to 2020," will gather women from various professional sectors to hear presentations and panels on topics ranging from women’s health and wellness to career development and leadership. This conference will encourage young adult women to take a moment to connect with other women and build on these new-found relationships. Women can accomplish so much when they put aside their fast‐paced roles in business or motherhood (or both) and make a decision to share, listen, learn and celebrate what they all have to offer each other and the world.
