"You Go Girl!" Panel Discussion

An opportunity to learn how to trust yourself and successfully navigate any industry by becoming your own advocate. Learn to develop key skills that can help you break any "ceiling" that is holding you back. 

Breaking the Glass Ceiling: Nobody Can Help You But YOU!

An opportunity to find the meaning in your life after military service.  Many female veterans suffer from an identity crisis after leaving the military.  Being separated from your branch of service and MOS, you no longer understand who you are supposed to be and how to operate in the world.  Learn to reidentify with who you are and how to reconnect.

An opportunity to capitalize on the things that come naturally to you.  They say when you love what you do, it doesn't feel like work.  Don't put off another year not working on your calling and what you are destined to become.  Let 2019 be the time you work on your passion and purpose.

     We are pleased to announce our 2019 Keynote speaker is Carol Eggert, Senior Vice President, Military and Veteran Affairs for Comcast NBCUniversal.  Carol has used the skills she learned during her service in the US Army, Army Reserve and National Guard to provide strategic leadership skills to all aspects of community outreach engaging the military and veteran community.

     With over 30 years of military and civilian experience, we are sure Ms. Eggert will have wonderful jewels of knowledge she can share with everyone.

Boots to Heels: Getting Your Warrior Back!

You see her from across the room.  The strong woman that seems to have it all together so you tell her, "You Go Girl!" as a word of encouragement; but, if only you knew the sacrifices she had to make.  From the outside looking in, women have a way of walking with grace while carrying the burden of every day stresses.  This panel discussion will explore the untold stories behind every successful "Go Girl".  The panelist will discuss how they balance personal/ professional responsibilities, best practices and lessons learned from every set back.  There will be a Q&A opportunity from the audience.  

Mindfulness: The Prescription for Multitasking

An opportunity to learn a practical approach to implementing self-care, lowering stress levels, and living a happier, healthier life.
