Participant Statements

"The speakers were well organized and the topics interesting. The folders were so nice and the goodies inside the folders were a bonus. The food, the facilities and the positive interaction was very wonderful. Thank you so much for all the work that went into making this a great day for so many." Fall 2015 Conference
"I enjoyed the career workshop greatly. This workshop was beneficial for entry level to executives in higher education.  Having the opportunity to hear all of the questions asked at the conclusion of the event also gave me great insight to other experiences other women in higher education have encounter. I plan to attend next year!" Fall 2015 Conference
"Definitely enjoyed the keynote speaker. Enjoyed the history of women in education session, pursuit towards doctoral degree panelists, and pursuit towards administrative positions panelists. Networking across institutions is very important to me. Having the opportunity to meet other professional women in education who are also actively working in doctoral degree programs and administrative positions proved extremely beneficial for me." Fall 2015 Conference
