About Women & Influence
Women & Influence 2008 is a FREE half-day conference focusing on violence and how community members can reduce its impact, keep themselves, their families and their neighborhoods safe, and truly work towards a violence-free Philadelphia region.

This conference will foster an open and informative dialogue around the culture of violence in our region. Learn how city officials, local agencies and community members like you are working to create a safer community. This conference will feature the work of many WOMEN’S WAY funded agencies, feature a panel discussion on local violence prevention programs and a community-wide call to action. Lunchtime workshops include conflict resolution skill-building and a training on how to talk to the young women in your life about dating violence.
