Here’s what participants said about our 2019 conference:

“I just wanted to reach out and say thank you to you and your team for Friday. I am always go-go-go so it was a much needed break to focus on myself. I am going to encourage every woman I know to attend next year and to check out all the great things happening at your facility. This community is blessed to have you!” Samantha


“…I’d like share with you that I greatly appreciate all the hard work you put into setting up that WE conference last Friday. That was a wonderful experience for me….I really enjoyed it….so thank you. I had a challenging week at work and going there on Friday and listening to the speakers was like setting the re-start button on myself. It was exactly what I needed. I look forward to attending more conferences like that at the YWCA.” Rebecca

Keynote Speaker:
Carol J. Bruess, PhD, Resident Scholar | Cassandra Voss Center, St. Norbert College

Carol J. Bruess (rhymes with “peace”), Ph.D., is Professor Emerita of Communication and Journalism and formerly Director of Family Studies at the University of St. Thomas, MN. She currently serves as Resident Scholar in the Cassandra Voss Center for equity, identity, and dialogue-across-difference at St. Norbert College, WI. As a professor, researcher, author and speaker the past 26 years, Carol’s primary passions are in studying how our relationship micro-moments of ritual and interaction are key to not only joy and happiness, but also to our physical health and longevity.

She is the author of five books, has presented her work at dozens of national, regional, and international conferences, recently spoke at TEDx Minneapolis (“Are All Relationships Messy?”), and has been featured in a variety of national media outlets, including: PBS, Oprah Radio, Cosmopolitan Magazine, American Health, Natural Health, CBS, NBC, FOX and ABC.
