She is Called
May 17-19, 2018
She Is Called is a conference, a gathering, a jumping off point for women who lead to connect and discuss issues surrounding their work and calling. Space is limited, so register today!
We believe calling is the internal howl of passion by which we understand ourselves and our work in the world. All too often women, particularly those in faith contexts, have been asked to quiet our passions. We’ve been taught to fear ambition, sacrifice goals, and resign hope. At She Is Called, we believe speaking our passion out loud has the power to rekindle it. We structure all we do around the idea that voicing our hope empowers us.
She Is Called is not a typical conference. Sessions will be conversational; content will form collaboratively. Facilitators will be there to keep things rolling, ask questions to spur further thinking, and guide the process, but your thoughts and insights will be the content.
