She Thrives Conference & Dinner

She Thrives is an annual event hosted by AGE of Central Texas that equips women of all ages and backgrounds with resources, information, and community to validate and support them as they navigate their life’s journey through aging and caregiving.

The conference is organized around three primary pillars: mental health and wellness, aging and caregiving, and financial and legal health. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend in-person and virtual panel discussions with subject matter experts within the conference’s pillars of focus.

The event will conclude with a dinner celebrating the belief that when a woman thrives, the community thrives.

She Thrives inaugural conference is scheduled for November 9, 2021, and the dinner is scheduled for November 11, 2021.

Tickets will be sold starting in August 2021.
