The 2019 Joan P. Schaupp Women’s Empowerment Conference includes powerful opportunities for educators, homemakers, human service providers and professionals from all cross sections of life to attend workshops and be provided with practical tools to move forward in all areas of their lives armed with information supporting social, emotional and physical health. This will all happen against the backdrop of a primarily female cast of presenters intent on helping women in the community be the best version of themselves.



The goal of the conference is to empower women and girls on three levels:

  1. Opportunity: provide an understanding of and access to the opportunities available to them in the greater Green Bay area-accomplished through exposure and networking with women from a variety of social and cultural locations.
  2. Education: facilitate a variety of workshops with information supporting personal, familial, community and professional health and growth through information exchange and transformational activities.
  3. Practice: create a laboratory for the practice and development of a variety of skills necessary for women and girls to know their worth and capacity having listened to and experienced the stories of other women and girls who have achieved success in places they aspire to be.

Power Panel lunch keynote: We have assembled a variety of powerful women from various sectors of the community. A moderated sharing of their experiences will be infused with audience questions related to their development, how they transcended barriers erected by gender and the sharing of advice they which they had known from the beginning.
