**Check-in starts at 8:30am and closing remarks ends at 4:00pm**

*Lunch and Keynote Speaker from 12:15pm-1:15pm in the University Rooms, Markee Pioneer Student Center*

The Women’s Wellness Conference will be used as a tool to educate, uplift, empower, and motivate women of all races, sizes, colors, and ethnicities.  In addition to a keynote and catered lunch, the schedule will include a series of breakout sessions throughout the day with topics including but not limited to:
• Sexual assault awareness
• Safer sex
• Being healthy at any size
• LGTBQ health and wellness issues
• Empowerment and confidence building
• Surviving alcohol and other drug abuse
• Women’s health information and awareness
• Other topics related to women, gender, race and ethnicity, sexuality, and wellness

In hosting this conference, we will build self-esteem, empower and build confidence, and provide resources and education to assist with the advancement of all women on the Platteville Campus.  In addition, this conference will provide networking opportunities for students and faculty to build safe, interpersonal relationships with one another.

We are pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Heather Shea Gasser, M.Ed. Heather is currently a doctoral student at Michigan State University studying Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education.  Heather also works full-time as the assistant director of RISE (Residential Initiative on the Study of the Environment), a living-learning community at Michigan State, where she oversees academic success, student learning outcomes assessment, and recruitment and retention activities.

Having recently served as the Director of the Women’s Center and worked closely with the LGBTQA Office at the University of Idaho for over five years, Heather’s areas of content knowledge include intersectionality, feminist leadership, social change, student activism, and social justice education.  Heather is also a co-host of the online live-streamed show, Student Affairs Live, which broadcasts on the HigherEdLive.com network each month.  She graduated from Colorado State University with a double major in graphic design and marketing, and then with a master’s degree in education from Colorado State in Student Affairs in Higher Education in 2000.
