The Women’s Empowerment Conference, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on March 9, has a registration deadline of March 6.

This year’s theme, “The Best Version of You,” is inspired by a new book by keynote speaker and former Hartnell employee Esmeralda Montenegro-Owen, titled “Beautiful: Seven Steps to the Best Version of You.” All attendees will receive a signed copy.

The free conference, in its fifth year, is being organized by the Associated Students of Hartnell College. Workshops will include self-care and wellness, career and professional development and self-defense. Business attire is recommended.

Another feature will be the availability of professional clothing donated by employees, and donations are still being accepted. For more information, contact student Samantha Saldana, director of the Inter-Club Council, at samanthajsaldana@student.hartnell.edu.
