Are you a woman looking to bridge the gap between what’s been holding you back and the future you’re envisioning for yourself? Then this is the conference for YOU! After 3 years of producing women-centric conferences we’ve seen the POWER of bringing together 200+ women who are seeking personal growth and professional development!
This year we see that the time is now to take a bold and brave look into what is holding you back and learn to let it go. To take a good look at vulnerability and see the strength within it. To understand what it means to trust yourself. To see that you are not alone in the challenges you face. To embrace positive change so you can create the ideal vision for your life.
On March 6 and 7, get ready for one-and-a-half days of:
through laughter, with an emphasis on active engagement through immediate implementation
Connecting with a diverse community
of women (ranging from employees to entrepreneurs) who want MORE without all the fear, pain, and sacrifice
Taking the lessons from the past
whose effects are felt here in the present, in order to shape an illuminated and empowered future
Women’s University Club of Seattle
All this while surrounding yourself in a location that was founded in 1914 by strong, enterprising women who wanted a place where smart, motivated, and dedicated women could come together in mutual support: the Women’s University Club.
We ALL have unique experiences and come from diverse backgrounds. By working together, and celebrating and honoring what makes us “special,” we are unstoppable!
We have assembled 12 inspiring women from all over the west coast to be our expert guides through a day of personal and professional development.

“This conference was like none other I have ever experienced. I have organized and been part of women’s retreats and conferences for decades. My experience attending this conference was like none other and the ‘take homes’ were profound and practical. The ‘tribe’ of women who attended were like-minded individuals, yet unique in their purpose and passion. I felt honored in my personal growth process and there was no sense of competition, only authentic support. The messages were real and raw, powerful and inspiring. I look forward to attending next year.”
-Sharon Hockenbury – Owner, Twin Peaks Nutrition and Wellness
“[The conference] was re-centering for me. The speakers were chosen with thoughtful purpose to reach as many women – where they are and with what they need – as possible. The attendees were gracious and genuinely wanted to make a connection with each other, so it was easy to feel welcome, accepted and valued, even if you didn’t know anyone. The conference has become one of the most important self-care days of my year, and is an incredible value of time and money.”
