The Athens Area Women’s+ Summit will return for a seventh consecutive year to empower and inspire a sold-out crowd of local women on Friday, November 10, 2023. Attendees will convene at Stuart’s Opera House to enjoy a day full of speaker sessions, networking, and fun.

The Athens Area Women’s+ Summit creates a space for attendees from all career fields and levels to come together and enjoy opportunities for connection, community-building, and self-discovery in a safe and welcoming environment. Featuring our Keynote Address, “Connected: Finding Genuine Connection in an Overly Connected World” presented by Jessica Kopelwitz, the days’ sessions will use a mix of academic approaches, real-life experiences, and interactive exercises to take attendees on a journey of personal and professional development and leave them feeling energized, emboldened, and capable of making change in their life and community.

Apart from engaging speaker sessions, attendees will be treated to both breakfast and lunch, where networking and forging new connections is encouraged. Throughout the day there will also be the chance to receive an on-site mammogram from the OhioHealth Mobile Mammography Unit.

The Athens Area Chamber wants to take a moment to thank all of our sponsors, our planning committee, and our volunteers for their continued help and generous support – we looking forward to a great day!
