The #NotABarbie Career and Empowerment Conference aims to provide guidance and build community among women and trans* professionals who are uninspired by “lean in” thinking. We seek to uplift and validate the characteristics that make women great employees, entrepreneurs, and leaders. 

This day-long conference is hosted by Boston GLOW (www.bostonglow.org) and features over 20 speakers in 3 breakout sessions and 3 keynote speakers.

The event will take place in Wheelock College’s Campus Center Student Residence building.

Growing up a military brat, Taylor learned a lot about starting over. After an unusually long stretch in DC, she moved to Florida just days after high school. The next four years included an AA from community college, a BS from Florida State, a new career in broadcast news, and a new baby right in the middle of things. However, despite thriving in her career, she was not thriving in Florida. So the single mom packed up her life and her then 6-year-old and moved to Boston entirely sight-unseen to pursue a law degree. In the nearly a decade since leaping off the edge, she has succeeded and failed countless times, and learned so much about finding happiness and building her own tribe.
