Pioneer Valley Conference for Women

Celebrates Its Inaugural Year with a Virtual Experience

Bringing Together Compelling Local Speakers, Bold Ideas, and Much More.

History has shown us that when women stand together with a shared vision, they inspire change! So, while a lot has changed in the world over the past year, our need to feel connected, engaged, and inspired has not - making this year’s Pioneer Valley Conference for Women more essential than ever. Conference organizers are committed to making this year’s event just as dynamic as past conferences, but at half the cost - just $25 per ticket thanks to our generous sponsors, Westfield Bank, Stand Out Truck, Wolf & Company P.C., & MorningBird Media, along with supportive small businesses from the area.

“Regardless of our age, job choices, or family circumstances, there is likely a local woman who has faced similar challenges, making a connection with her may open a door, build a bridge, or change a life. We want to foster those relationships because we know how powerful they can be,” said Jen Maseda, founder and CEO, She’s Local and the Pioneer Valley Conference for Women. “Our speakers are leaders in our community and experts in their field, who have valuable advice to share and we want to give them an accessible local platform to connect with women, close to home.”

Please join us virtually on Thursday, March 4, from 8:00AM - 1:00PM for dynamic keynote speakers, expert panel discussions, fun-filled entertainment breaks, an exhibitor room, and of course - networking opportunities.

This year’s keynote speakers will be President of Holyoke Community College, Christina Royal and Best Selling Author & Award Winning Celebrity Humorist Speaker, Trainer and Consultant, Linda Edgecombe. Plus Season’s Magazine’s TV Correspondent Ashley Kohl will join us as this year’s Master of Ceremonies.

  • Positivity: Finding Hope Through Despair
  • Thriving Through Transition for Personal & Professional Growth
  • Caring for Self & Others During Challenging Times
  • Authentic Storytelling to Drive Engagement & Prosperity

You can purchase tickets here. All tickets also include access to taped sessions following the live event, as well as facilitated networking rooms and a private Pioneer Valley Attendee Facebook networking group with panel conversation follow-up.
