NCJW Pittsburgh Section and The Center for Women are Presenting Partners of the Crossroads Conference for Women. Have you faced a crossroads in your life? Then the Crossroads Conference is for you! Join the Women and Girls Foundation and our partners for a unique, one-day conference for women navigating the crossroads of life. The Conference will explore challenges, opportunities, and questions related to the many crossroads women may face in the course of their lifetime. Speakers will tell their personal stories and how they have navigated their life’s crossroads in high-energy, fast-paced sessions followed by more intimate salon conversations with topic experts and other attendees who may be facing the same “crossroads.” The format is unique – an “unconference” conference – and designed to be exciting and different from any other women’s conference out there. Our speakers’ stories will be ones which almost any woman can relate to at some point in their journey – stories we can learn from and be inspired by. Topics may include: Addiction Domestic Violence Facing a Health Diagnosis Re-entering the Workforce Parenting Children with Disabilities Marriage/Divorce/Relationships Entrepreneurship Job/Career Change Taking over the Family Business Aging/Retirement Gender Identity Grief and Loss Parenting Teens Being Part of the Sandwich Generation Relocating for Your Career or Your Partner’s To Have or Not Have Children Mental Health In service of WGF’s mission to develop women leaders, and timed to coincide with Women’s History Month in March, the Crossroads Conference is certain to be an inspiring and productive day. The Conference will provide multiple opportunities for leadership development and networking to over 500 women in the Southwestern Pennsylvania region. WGF believes that when women thrive, communities prosper. Our goal is to encourage, inspire and provide resources for women to grow and to create a lasting community of support for Crossroads Conference attendees. We welcome and encourage all women to attend. Our speakers will represent women of all ages, races, ethnicities, income levels, career stages, and life experiences, and we hope our audience will too!
