Women’s Journey Conference

WJC Header960

Eleven years ago a group of women pooled their resources to create a day to honor women. We wanted to give each woman the experience of being nurtured and celebrated. It was here that the Women’s Journey Conference (WJC) was born. The conference has since expanded into an annual event for women and girls of all ages, professions and socio-economic backgrounds, providing opportunities for self-discovery, community, and inspiration for all.  Each year we invite cutting-edge speakers, community leaders and entertainers. Our vision is to educate and inspire women & girls to live life more fully, with a greater sense of self-mastery, and self-trust.

Did you know?  (Statistics provided by the Girl Scout Research Institute).

  • 90% of all women want to change at least one aspect of their physical appearance.
  • 81% of 10 year-old girls are afraid of being fat.
  • Every 15 seconds a woman is battered; every 7 minutes a girl is bullied at school.
  • 1 in 3 girls who have been in a serious relationship say they’ve been concerned about being physically hurt by their partner.
  • There is a high correlation between low self-esteem & disordered eating, bullying, smoking & drinking.
  • 1 in 3 girls between the ages of 16 and 18 say sex is expected for people their age in relationships.

Low self-esteem impacts women and girls of all ages and socio-economic backgrounds. The environment created at the WJC helps women and girls feel better about themselves. We are particularly proud of our girls program which brings together at-risk and mainstream youth to foster greater acceptance, understanding and fun! The learning they experience together powerfully impacts their lives and life choices for years to come.

This year we are having celebrities like Carnie Wilson speak about career and body image. The Ellison sisters, who were the #1 ranking junior tennis players and college athletes at San Diego State University, speak to the girls about self-esteem in sports and life, Nia Vardolos from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Tina Lifford, Author and star of the hit show Parenthood, Lilly Elise, Star of The Voice, Mollie and Meredith Baxter from Family Ties, Donna Schuller, Inspirational Speaker and TV co-host, and many, many more.

Dr. Jeanne Michele will be functioning as the moderator of a Mother / Daughter panel which will include Meredith Baxter and her daughter Mollie, Donna Schuller and her mother, and Camellia Hudson Franklin and her daughter, Ella.  Our goal is to honor the unique gifts offered within a mother / daughter relationship and gain some tips for more gracefully working through the rough spots.

Our conference, which is being held the Saturday before Mothers Day, offers mothers, grandmothers, daughters and friends, the opportunity to come together to experience life in a new way.  So, whether you attend on your own, with a friend, or bring your daughter or granddaughter to our youth program, this is a great day for you to relax, laugh and be inspired.  It also makes a great Mother’s Day gift for dads to give to their wives and/or daughters.

Women and girls leave the conference with a renewed sense of acceptance and encouragement, which helps them to flourish within their communities, schools, families and workplaces.  To register please visit our website. Women’s Journey Conference.
