ABWHE Issue 2 2019 National Conference ABWHE Issue 3 ABWHE Issue 4

Many thanks to ABWHE's national conference planning committee and Minnesota Chapter members for coordinating a very successful conference in St. Paul, MN, October 16 – 18, 2019.


The 23rd biennial national conference, hosted for the first time in Minnesota would not have been a success without the generous support of our conference sponsors:  Hamline University, St. Catherine University, Minnesota Private College Council, Minnesota State, University of Northwestern, Anoka-Ramsey Community College, and Planting People, Growing Justice.  We greatly appreciate your support throughout this historical event.


The national conference, with the theme: “Respect the Root: Reclaiming Our Strength and Diversity” gathered nationally acclaimed authors, speakers and scholars to provide inspirational and motivational insights on topics that were timely, integral and invaluable to women who want to succeed in any environment. Over 100 participants attended the 3-day conference, held at Hamline University on October 16, and St. Catherine University on October 17 -18.


We also acknowledge the additional support from our conference partners.
