“The Celebrate Women conference is a full day of enlightening sessions - in health, business, professional, and social issues for women of all ages,” said Pamela A. Kaylor, Ph.D., Communication Studies/Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies Associate Professor of Instruction for Ohio University Lancaster, “Last year, sold out quickly, so we encourage attendees to register early.”
Ohio University Lancaster | Pickerington’s Celebrate Women conference theme is Vision 2020: Empowering Women and will feature a keynote address 'Living a Fearless Life' by Kat Perkins.
After being invited to audition for THE VOICE, Kat Perkins climbed all the way to the TOP 5 where her coach, Adam Levine said what many had said for weeks, “Kat Perkins is hands down one of the best singers we’ve ever had on THE VOICE.” She now travels the country performing and sharing with people her unique message of remaining determined, fearless, and following their dreams. Her first single ‘Fearless’ hit #5 on iTunes with her latest single ‘DRIVE’ charting within 24 hours of its release.
Now in its 14th year and organized by Ohio University Lancaster faculty, staff, and students, the Celebrate Women Conference aims to bridge women’s relationships in areas of community, university and professions. The conference theme, "Vision 2020: Empowering Women" will focus on presentations by more than twenty speakers, a Celebrate Women luncheon, and opportunities for information booths, continuing education credits, and networking.
