Another fantastic conference comes to an end. I heard some really wonderful things these last few days:
“I’ve never felt so welcome anywhere the way I did here.”
“I can’t tell who’s a learner and who’s a teacher. We’re all just women together.”
“I never knew what it meant to have women as friends, to trust women.”
“I learned so much.”
“I come here to be re-energized.”
“I will definitely be back next year.”
“I learned so much, and I can take this back to my community.”
This was such a good year. We had so many students — 40% of our participants were students this year. More than ever before. That was pretty exciting.
Tomorrow is our first board meeting of the new year — conference debrief, meeting planning for the year and setting our task lists. Work, but very satisfying on the heels of the last three excellent days.
