About the Event

The Sonoma County Women in Conversation events continue to create a strong voice surrounding topics of interest to women of all ages, building a community of women who support and motivate each other and engage in important conversations.

We are expanding our program in the fall, with a larger, beautiful venue and with more engagement and attendee interaction.

The Sonoma County Women in Conversation Experience will start at 3:30 p.m. on the lovely grounds of the Green Music Center, with a free-flowing, informal format that will encourage guests to mingle and engage with the many exhibiting partners. At 6:30 p.m., the event will shift to the speaker portion with three fascinating women with different life experience and perspectives.

Join us and learn, laugh, and leave feeling inspired!
