In serving as a platform for the voices of women in a variety of disciplines, the Passion into Action Conference™(PIA) (www.passionintoaction.tv) creates a space for women to meet, network, explore ideas, identify their passion, support a passion, collaborate, and more. Most importantly PIA provides workshops, tools and access to experts who are cutting edge in their field to help shift concepts & ideas, into action. The event showcases real women, with real solutions; mixing local and non-local female leaders, visionaries, artists and celebrates, female empowerment in all its forms. This inspired gathering of hearts and minds creates a space for women to tap into their passions, and through action, make them a reality. Nina Simons, former PIA speaker and co-founder of Bioneers (www.bioneers.org) says “it’s an extraordinary experience, Passion into Action, and I’ve never seen or felt a gathering quite like it.”
The Passion into Action Conference™ specifically was designed for women in rural communities and small towns. These are areas where little steps can lead to bigger changes at a rapid pace. By empowering the women of small towns we see community members who are vested on a personal level and who are actively shifting the balance not only of women leadership in their communities but are affecting positive change in government, sustainability and their local economies improving their lives and others.
For 2012, See Jane Do projects over 500 will attend the conference to be inspired, connect and learn.
October 12th-14th, 2012- Grass Valley Veterans Memorial Auditorium, Holiday Inn Express and The Center for the Arts.
