Following the success the Sustainability Unconference, Important Media is hosting the Women’s Unconference to inspire women and allies to become catalysts for positive change while facing an uncertain political future. All humans are welcome at this event, whether you identify as a woman or otherwise.
Regardless of your what role is in the community– activist, business owner, parent, healer, or student– everyone has skills that can inspire a fellow Unconference attendee. Workshop topics could include:
Making your voice heard in the community (political, neighborhood)
Getting involved in community activism
How to focus on self-care and wellness during stressful times
Work and family life
- Mindfulness and Positivity
What is an Unconference?
An unconference is like a regular conference except that it does not have a pre-set agenda. Instead, attendees can arrive at the Unconference with a topic to discuss, and then the crowd votes to determine which topics are of the highest interest. Those topics that receive the most votes become the agenda for the day. The open agenda and day-of planning allows for innovation, sharing, and collaboration across topics in ways not always available at regular conferences, giving participants a chance to learn new skills and gain insight from colleagues and neighbors rather than ‘experts’, which at most conferences are often pre-chosen based on who sponsored the event.
