Join Allison Bishins Consulting and a unique panel of speakers exploring the experience of modern womxn (cisgender and trans women) in the modern workplace and in art. We'll also spend time in small "Nurture" groups getting to know a small group of womxn, finding out how to support each other better and tackle work in healthy ways.
