For the past few years, we here at Mom Central have had the pleasure of attending the Massachusetts Conference for Women. As a predominantly female team, and with the annual conference right in our backyard, we all vie for the chance to go each year and experience the magic that is this conference.
Last December I was struck by the variety of offerings. With thousands of women gathered from all different walks of life both professionally and personally, I was dying to know what we could all gain… other than awesome female-targeted product samples… and the samples were awesome! But the programs and sessions were phenomenal, diverse and enlightening.
I sat in on “A Fireside Chat on Obtaining Power, Influence and Driving Healthy Advancements in the Workplace” with former President of my Alma Matter – Suffolk University, Margaret McKenna – also known as the first female deputy council to President Carter. I learned how to “Negotiate at Work: Turning Small Wins into Big Gains” and realizing your value by taking stock of your strengths. Lastly I discovered tips on how to “Double Your Productivity in a Day” through 5 easy steps:
I walked away with so much knowledge, so much strength, and even got a few laughs in checking out the latest product crazes in the “Marketplace.”
Needless to say, I can’t wait to go back! Luckily, The Mass Conference for Women is already in the works for next year and the lineup of keynotes and sessions is stacked!
Bethany Frankel, Real Housewife of New York and Skinnygirl brand maven will be there opening night, with keynote speakers like Academy Award winning actresses and activists Meryl Streep and Viola Davis speaking the following day! Additionally, a Workplace Summit will be held for the third year in a row designed to teach women and men how to promote gender partnerships and advance equity within the workplace.
