It is that time of year again! The 2nd annual Women 2 Women Conference 2015 (W2W 2015) an Atlanta based multi-generational interactive conference designed to inspire, empower and enlighten attendees is set for Saturday, March 14 at the Atlanta Marriot Marquis.

The Conference day will begin with an opening plenary session. The guest speaker for the morning is Award-winning playwright and Best-selling Author, Pearl Cleage.

Pearl Cleage is an African-American author whose work, both fiction and non-fiction, has been widely recognized. Her novel “What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day” was a 1998 Oprah Book Club selection.

The Opening Plenary will be followed by a diverse and influential roster of dynamic women who will share candid and compelling information over a series of morning workshops. Susan L. Taylor will present the keynote address, followed by our W2W Wisdom Circles. In response to requests from our 2014 attendees, Wisdom Circles will provide a more intimate and safe gathering space for women to come together to share their life stories and strengthen ties to each other, offering expanding opportunities for growth, caring and connection; and/or gathering for one-on-one interactive sessions with financial planning, investment, and insurance resources and more.

The afternoon will end with a networking reception designed to make meaningful and powerful connections between sponsors, attendees, exhibitors, and speakers.
