For almost 20 years, women from around the country and the world have been inspired by Omega’s Women & Power conferences and retreats, all dedicated to the call to “do power differently.” Our conference this year features keynotes, panel conversations, and entertainment popping up throughout the weekend and across the campus—a festival of resilience and rejuvenation. It’s a chance for each of us to gather our strength and take it back home to our families, workplaces, and communities.
If ever there’s a time for women to share ideas and renew our commitment to a better world, it is now. Join us.
