I attended the Women's Empowerment Conference last year. I was impressed with the motivation and energy that permeated the rooms. It was refreshing to be in the company of so many participants -- from those who contributed their professional knowledge/experience to those who gathered any and everything they decided would be personally beneficial. Overall, the conference was a day well spent. Just simply seeing so many positive-minded women in attendance was empowering in itself. BW
