A Call to Service; A Call to Action! California’s Women Veterans Conference 2012

I’m excited to have been invited to speak at this year’s California’s Women Veterans Conference October 4th in Sacramento. A Call To Service; A Call To Action is a Women’s Leadership Conference focusing on leadership and empowerment. CalVet Women Veterans are hosting this 5th annual conference at the Double Tree Hotel at 2001 Point West Way, Sacramento, CA 95815 on October 4, 2012.

This conference is an opportunity to reconnect with friends from the previous conferences and to meet the new women veterans in California. It is not only about networking and empowerment, it is also about the interaction and relationships developed to support each other with the struggles of transition after the military as well as the challenges we encounter every day in our lives.

What to expect at this year’s Cal Vet Women Veterans Conference

The committee and the CA Department of Veteran Affairs Deputy Secretary for Women Veterans Lindsey Sin have reached out to influential women and veterans in our community to empower all participants and garner support for the event.

The keynote speakers will include:

  • Zoe Dunning, candidate for the 2012 Democratic County Central Committee
  • Eve Purvis-Allen, Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women
  • Delphine Metcalf-Foster, member of the VA Advisory Committee on Women Veterans
  • Seth Lynn, the executive director of Veterans Campaign that teaches veterans how to run for office.

In addition to a full day of empowerment and leadership there will be a women’s diversity panel, a screening of Rebecca Murga’s newest documentary, an art show, a networking scavenger hunt, and a photo slideshow at the dinner reception.
