Embracing Change With the Wonder of All That Is Possible
The Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau is excited to announce the 16th annual
 East Bay Women's Conference

The team behind the East Bay Women's Conference (EBWC) has enjoyed staying connected with you during the summer with our Beyond the Conference series. Just like the rest of the world, we needed to adapt, adjust, pivot, and make some unexpected changes. Therefore, we have decided to move the 2021 EBWC to a virtual format. Given the current health crisis, and the uncertainty that the upcoming months bring, this is the right decision. We are excited that technology enables us to still bring the EBWC community together for this much anticipated day of enrichment. Drawing inspiration from last year's event, Wow! Wonder of Women, we look forward to expanding our program, furthering our reach, and embracing this new challenge with the wonder of all that is possible!
To make inquiries about the Conference or 2021 Conference Sponsorship, please contact EBWC Founder Marcie Hochhauser at mhoch@walnut-creek.com.
