In September, a group of WILD ladies are getting together at the North Dakota Farmers Union state office in Jamestown for a two-day conference full of networking, shopping, and great presenters. The conference features two keynote speakers in Rebecca Undem and Lauren Leader-Chivee.

Undem is a self-proclaimed “part-time development expert, part-corporate America misfit, farmer’s daughter turned farmer’s wife and mama to three young kids.” She has said there has never been a better time to be a professional woman. She helps working women find the peace among the chaos of running a household and pursuing a meaningful career.

“I believe the only way to find and keep our groove is to find the courage to live on our terms, rather than based on what we think we’re supposed to do or what others want us to do.”

Lauren Leader-Chivee is a writer, activist, expert and advisor. She argues that diversity is the most under-leveraged economic asset in the United States. She is dedicated to help women have a voice in politics – on both sides of the aisle.

“I hope each and every one of us will look deeply within ourselves and ask how we can build trust and understanding with someone we might otherwise avoid or overlook.”

Register today for the WILD conference on Sept. 13-14 in Jamestown and get ready for some networking, shopping, a self-defense course and great speakers!
