Attendees should expect to learn:

1) How to engage in the global 'Chat and Chew' project created to foster greater understanding in difference and building accomplices instead of alliances.
2) How to authentically tell your story and share your experiences to make impact.
3) How to convey your message.Women who are committed to making an impact in the world, step by step, day by day and operating in a life of 'Purpose, Not Position' will share their stories, projects and authentic truths on how to engage and continue to do the work to make change.
