Yes, yes, and yes! While our conference and the topics focused on are female-centric, we encourage and welcome any person of any gender identification to attend our conference. There is something for everyone at our conference and anyone can benefit from attendance. 

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Come as you are, whatever age that may be. The only ID requirements we have insist that all Salem College Students bring their student ID for ticket purposes. You will miss out on the soul food without proof of student identification, so come prepared!


As a student, will I receive an excused absence for missing classes on Friday?

We want to make our conference as friendly to the work-life balance as possible. We cannot guarantee that your professors will excuse your absence from class. However, it is an incredible educational opportunity and many professors are understanding of this. If you have concerns about being able to attend for this reason, please send an email to
