Events featuring notable inspiring women who want to share their life lessons and stories of hope and triumph. Gain insight from these local women and takeaway their lessons to apply to your daily life.
Our Latina Initiatives Committee and members are the bridge to the Latina community in and around Berks County. De Mujer A Mujer – Estableciendo Conexiones (translated Women2Women – Establishing Connections) are monthly meetings showcasing local women who share their life stories, obstacles and successes. New for 2018-2019 is the addition of professional development workshops through the year and the first-ever Latina Lifestyle Conference and Expo in July to end the program year!
Developing the women in our community also means more than concentrating on professional advances. Some of our events have a personal development focus and the women offering these presentations will discuss work/life balance, transitioning careers and more.
Women2Women Conference & Expo
The Women2Women Conference offers a full day of professional & personal development, networking, inspirational speakers & an Expo filled with local women-owned businesses. Every year we honor an ATHENA recipient who is nominated for attaining professional excellence, community service and for actively assisting women in their achievement of professional excellence.
Developing more women leaders is the mission of Women2Women and many of our events will leave you with takeaways to apply to your professional life. Whether you are going to ask for that raise, join a volunteer group or build your own business our events will offer the tools to take with you.
