Virginia Women's Conference This Weekend


Hundreds of women will be networking in downtown Roanoke this weekend at the Virginia Women’s Conference, hosted by Senator Mark Warner.

The annual event takes place in rotating regions of the state, with a day of sessions on careers, health, personal development and business. At this year’s conference, one of the sessions was inspired by a documentary called “The Big Flip—Stories from the Modern Home Front.”  The film explores the challenges of marriage and parenting, when the woman is the primary breadwinner.  

The keynote speakers for Saturday’s Women’s Conference will be Kathy Korman Frey of the Hot Mommas Project, which pairs the world’s largest digital case study library of female role models with high-tech teaching tools, and RynthiaRost, head of national community affairs and marketing for GEICO.   

All of the sessions Saturday are free, but you do have to be registered, which you can do here.
