Frequently Asked Questions
The Aspire Her® Conference is designed with women in mind: those in careers, those returning to the workforce, and entrepreneurs. If you fit into one of these categories there are workshops just for you! If you’re not sure where you fit in we feel confident you’ll find direction, confidence, and support through our workshops and network of women’s groups.
- Notepads and pens will be provided in your swag bag when you register in the morning. You are welcome to use these or to bring your own from home.
- We recommend a water bottle to stay hydrated during the day.
- There will be many networking opportunities– if you have business cards this would be a great place to hand out a few dozen.
- You will want to connect with other women online, bring your phone so you can look up IG handles on the spot. And don’t forget to snap some selfies with your new friends.
- Finally, you’ll thank us later if you wear comfortable shoes!

With two full days of workshops on the docket, the most important thing you should do is dress comfortably! From business formal to casual, any style is welcome. We do ask that you refrain from attire that contains offensive language or wording that could be considered bullying or discriminatory.
Absolutely! Although the speakers, panels, and workshops are designed with women in mind we welcome the perspective and support of anyone who is interested in the aspirations of women.
We are happy to welcome babes-in-arms but ask that more mobile children be left with another caregiver.
