Women in Language 2021
Join us for Women in Language, an online event created to champion, celebrate and amplify female and non-binary voices in language learning.
Passionate about language learning?
About culture? Learning? Social topics? Equality? Self improvement?
We are too, and that's why we're (that's Kerstin Cable, Lindsay Williams, and Shannon Kennedy) back hosting our fourth Women in Language conference.
This March, join us in celebrating lesser heard voices in language learning.
We do too.
Our current global situation has put more distance between us than before, and Women in Language is an event where you can connect, find inspiration, and learn.
Now more than ever, it's important for more voices to be heard.
That's why we do things a little differently, introducing...
Welcome to Women in Language
Meet a collaborative and supportive team of language learners without leaving the comfort of your couch at home. Enjoy four action-packed days of panels, language practice sessions, and talks from an inspiring line-up of expert speakers with diverse backgrounds: polyglots, industry veterans, full-time world travelers, teaching experts, academic professors, and innovators.
Not to mention--every speaker and panelist at this event is female, trans or non-binary. Heck yes!
This year, we're putting 30+ female, trans and non-binary speakers in the spotlight.
Women In Language is a unique online event designed to champion, celebrate, and amplify the lesser-heard voices in language learning.
The event this year is happening Thursday 4th March - Sunday 7th March 2021.
