About WE Con

The annual Women's Empowerment Conference (WE Con) is presented every spring by the Women's Community Center of Central Texas. WE Con strives to be a welcoming community event where women, girls, femmes, and those who care about them can share knowledge and insights, build community, and find self-empowerment. We are celebrating the fourth year of WE Con, and invite you to be part of what is becoming an Austin tradition

1. Who can attend?

WE Con 2017 is open to women, girls, femmes, genderqueer and non-binary people, and those who are interested in learning about issues affecting these communities in Austin and the surrounding areas. Even if you're not part of these communities, this is your chance to learn what you can do to support them.

2. What accommodations do you provide?

WE Con offers complimentary childcare every year. We hire Mom's Best Friend, a local care provider service, to provide excellent childcare, and the ratio of child to care provider is relatively low. Spanish-English interpretation is available, and included with ticket costs. The ACC Eastview campus has entrances for people with disabilities.

3. What is new this year?

This year we are introducing a networking hour at the end of the conference, from 3:15 - 5 pm. After a full day of workshops and panel, we invite you to stick around for drinks, conversation with new friends, the Resource Fair and Market, and an awards ceremony.

4. What about food?

Buffet style lunch will be served by Alegria Catering, our generous sponsor this year. Breakfast snacks and beverages will be provided, as well as, an afternoon dessert and cocktail.
