“I remember my first WCWI Annual Conference – I left that first conference thinking ‘why didn’t I know about this sooner.’ It was one of the best conferences I’ve ever been to. And ever since then every single opportunity with WCWI I have left energized, motivated, and passionate, and really reconnecting with why.” 


– Jenniffer Price-Lehmann, Fox Valley Technical College and member of WCWI’s Board of Directors
