Friday | March 4, 2022 | 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Join us for the 2022 Thomas More Women’s Conference sponsored by DBL Law. The year 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the University’s founding, commemorating when the Benedictine Sisters opened Villa Madonna College to train Catholic schoolteachers and provide a college education for women. We could not think of a more appropriate time to invite women back to campus to inspire, encourage, and explore their passions. The women featured at the Conference are making an impact on the region in a powerful way and include:
Heather Ackels ’07 – Executive Director INTERalliance of Greater Cincinnati
Jenni Crowley, Ph.D. ’03 – Senior Manager Deloitte
Priya Dhingra Klocek – President and CEO Consultant on the Go
Becca Gardner – Founder and CEO ALT Distilling
Laura A. Koehl ’80, Ed.D. – Executive Director SND USA
Kathrine Nero – Social Media Host/Reporter Enquirer Media
Angela Rivers-Harper – Programs Director Dress for Success
Rachael Sampson ’20 – National Director Key4Women | KeyBank
Amy Spiller – President Duke Energy
Moira Weir ’00 – President and CEO United Way of Greater Cincinnati
Each Conference attendee earns a digital badge for their participation, which can be shared on social media platforms to showcase the skills and knowledge learned throughout the day.
