First-Ever SHERO Warrior Conference Coming to Pensacola
Coinciding with International Women’s Day, the first-ever SHERO Warrior Conference will take place in Pensacola, Florida on March 8–10. The conference is presented by The Monument to Women Veterans, Woman’s Club of Pensacola, and Powerful Women of the Gulf Coast. It will feature powerful speakers and networking opportunities for women, and will be a celebration of women as leaders in the community.
“In addition to our organization’s work to create a monument honoring women in the military, the upcoming SHERO Warrior Conference will be an incredible opportunity to celebrate and recognize the 2.3 million women in the military, as well as celebrate the strength and unity of women from all walks of life,” said Michelle Caldwell, Founder of Monument to Women Veterans. “The SHERO Warrior Conference is for all women, as all women are Shero warriors.”
During the three-day conference, women from across the United States will come to Pensacola to learn about resources, make new connections, share concerns, take part in discussions on the future for women in leadership roles, and to have fun with new and old friends. The conference will also provide opportunities to build working relationships for women veterans to find success in life after their military service.
The conference kicks off on Friday, March 8 with a wine tasting, hors d’oeuvres and a special paint and wine night, “Paint like a Shero,” with local Pensacola artist, Bev Schoopman.
