While we will not be hosting a Women’s Congress this year, we will be hosting a series of events in Northern California which will be opportunities for you to speak out on issues you care about, connect with community and receive support for your projects, and evolve the world of ideas that we have set in motion since our first gatherings over a decade ago.
