Recent shifts in our cultural conversations on mental health emphasize why wellness and leadership aren’t mutually exclusive. Instead of having a divider due to the constant need to juggle the two, we are creating a new approach to normalizing healthier work habits and wholesome learning experiences. All while creating mutually beneficial connections through community.
Through inspiring speaker sessions to insightful panel discussions, we’re bringing together a community of learners, culture shifters, and innovators to this free 2-day summit as we create brave spaces to redefine what leadership, wellness, and identity mean in our modern world.
Join us as we break down the barriers hindering womxn from their limitless potential and celebrating the changemakers who are paving the way.
