Gathering Strength, Sharing Wisdom: Women & Power Conference at Omega Institute | Sponsored | Adult Ed-Continuing | Hudson Valley | Chronogram Magazine
Women in power, women and the current power structure, women’s empowerment—pick an aspect of the situation and the news cycle of any given day will yield a fresh crop of developments, some glorious and some rancid. Sorting it all out and charting a course forward is a whole lot easier with allies, information, and community.

You’ll find plenty of the above at the Omega Women’s Leadership Center conference taking place September 27-29, "Women & Power: Gathering Our Strength."
Women from around the globe will gather to continue, face to face, a conversation that has been a constant at Omega for nearly two decades: how to “do power differently,” in ways that heal rather than harm.

"The question is not if women should and can be powerful in all spheres of human activity. We know we should and we know we can," Omega Institute and Omega Women's Leadership Center co-founder Elizabeth Lesser says. "The question, rather, is this: Can women do power differently? Can we use our power to heal and help and change the world for the better?"

Attendees will hear from #metoo founder Tarana Burke and New York Times best-selling author Roxane Gay, meet New York Women’s Foundation president and CEO Ana L. Oliveira, and Alliance of Families for Justice executive director Soffiyah Elijah, to name just four of more than 24 presenters.
Keynote speeches and panel discussions will be interspersed with opportunities for rejuvenation and celebration, including everything from yoga classes to a parade from Batalá NY, and a Natalie Merchant concert.

Workshops will help you hone your skills in areas such as leadership, public speaking, stress reduction, creativity or community building; you can take a lesson in tai chi or meditation, or walk the trails and gardens on Omega’s 250-acre campus. Included in your stay are three meals per day in Omega’s dining hall where the emphasis is on sustainable, nutrient-dense, artisanal, whole-foods. All weekend long you’ll be nourishing yourself , and connecting with women from near and far who want to do power differently.
