About The Event
Does it seem impossible to do ALL.THE.THINGS. day in and day out? Are you trying to live "authentically," but aren't even sure you know what that means? If you answered YES to any of the above, stop what you are doing and mark your calendars now for JWL's first ever "Women @ Work" Conference on Saturday, March 17th at the Johnston County Agricultural Center (also known as the Johnston County Center).
JWL's “Women @ Work” Conference is for women who are working inside the home, outside the home, in their communities, or in their hearts to make the world a better place. This is an opportunity for women who are at work day in and day out to come together to revive their spirits and learn insight from each other to live their best lives everyday. "Women @ Work" is sure to be an exciting and engaging event for women of all ages. The morning will consist of a keynote presentation by Adrian Wood, Phd, author of Tales of an Educated Debutante, three breakout sessions on topics relevant to today's woman, and a light lunch. "Women @ Work" is open to the public. Tickets are $10 for JWL members and $20 for non-members. They will be on sale from Monday, January 2nd until Saturday, March 10th. Plan to join us at "Women @ Work" on Saturday, March 17th.
