2022 Thomas More Women’s Conference

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.
