Joining Steinem and Waters are emcee Jan Wahl, San Francisco Bay Area film critic and historian, and guest speaker Ann Tardy, who shares secrets to finding one’s moxie and making a difference in the workplace.
The annual all day conference, this year themed "Voices, Views, and Forces for Change" and sure to be another sell-out, blends premier keynote and featured speaker presentations;
Breakout sessions feature industry experts in personal development, business leadership, entrepreneurship, surviving change, technology & social media, health & nutrition; and money & finance. New this year, EBWC designates additional conference time to networking and an extended afternoon premium wine tasting (5–5:30 p.m.), sponsored by Rock Wall Wine Company, after the closing reception and entertainment.
EBWC is the only conference of its kind in San Francisco’s East Bay that provides women opportunities to connect and participate in programs of personal and professional enrichment. Recognized by the community for programming excellence, the EBWC has enjoyed sold out attendance of 540+ since its 2006 inaugural event.
Gloria Steinem is recognized around the world as an articulate, outspoken leader, writer, lecturer, editor, and feminist activist who has been involved in issues of equality and social justice movements for more than forty years. She has been a voice for the rights of women when women had no voice.
Alice Waters, chef, author, and owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, CA, is a pioneer of the organic food movement and a culinary philosophy based on using only the freshest organic products, served only in season.
