We deliver inspiration & engagement.
Our mission is to create lasting experiences for women, close to home. Since 2016, our She’s Local team of volunteers have created and sustained local conferences for women in six regions of New England. We average 300 attendees at each in-person event, skillfully bringing together speakers, vendors, entertainers, sponsors, attendees, business owners and community leaders. Through the pandemic, we pivoted successfully to a hybrid platform with both in-person & virtual options, maintaining full access to connections and inspiration for local women. This year in Pioneer Valley, we are working towards our second hybrid conference to be held at the Springfield Marriott on May 9, 2024 with a Comedy Kick-off the evening before featuring a local female comedian.
We are different from every other local conference for women in the country.
Customized for Local Women
Each local conference is customized to the women in their community. In the four months leading up to the conference, we host local in-person and virtual meetups to gather the important topics that matter to the women we serve. We then ask local experts to apply to be panelists on conference day. Once the topics are collected and the application process closes, we then match local speakers to the topics that matter to women in the area.
Women Living Similar Lives
Each of our panels are made up of three local experts: real, accessible, relatable women from the local community. Women who will answer a phone call or meet for coffee, close by. We match these experts with each other so they can weave together their passion and purpose for a well thought-out and informative session for our audience. Over the course of 3 months, panelists meet and customize their panel format, title, description and key take-aways, all while being promoted through our She’s Local social and digital channels prior to, during and following their local conference.
Affordable for ALL
A Ticket Price We Can Feel Good About Investing
We want to make information and inspiration accessible to ALL. Our in-person conference tickets remain at $52 for a full-day conference including breakfast, lunch, coffee-all-day, and complementary wine during a post conference DJ-hosted celebration. A dollar a week to invest in yourself is something we can feel good about. We will include a Virtual component this year, making the opportunity to connect with local women, even more accessible. We also give scholarships to women struggling to make ends meet, female veterans and survivors of domestic violence.
