“Women are working harder then ever in all areas of life yet live with daunting feelings knowing a woman’s job will never be done. Women were encouraged to ‘succeed’ yet achieving success is simply too obscure to measure” according to Nancy Jacobs, founder and Executive Director for The Society for the Advancement of Women. “However, if we simply exchange the word success for fulfillment, the glass fills higher with each breath as each task becomes more easily measurable, achievable and extremely worthwhile.” The Society’s kick-off conference, The Evolution of Women, carries this theme...

“The Evolution of Women” is a groundbreaking conference and exhibition being held by the Society for the Advancement of Women June 3-4, 2006, at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta. World-renowned experts will address more than 1,800 conference attendees, sharing much-needed women’s research as well as uniquely female perspectives on women’s health, personal security, emotional connectivity and communication.

“Women are working harder then ever in all areas of life yet live with daunting feelings knowing a woman’s job will never be done. Women were encouraged to ‘succeed’ yet achieving success is simply too obscure to measure” according to Nancy Jacobs, founder and Executive Director for The Society for the Advancement of Women. “However, if we simply exchange the word success for fulfillment, the glass fills higher with each breath as each task becomes more easily measurable, achievable and extremely worthwhile.” The Society’s kick-off conference, The Evolution of Women, carries this theme throughout with timely topics from noted authors such as Liz Perle’s discussion on how women's emotional relationship with money affects every part of their lives. Dr. Dorie McCubbrey gives women tools to discover image boosters to lose weight worries and gain self-esteem. Then U.K. Relationship Guru, Author & U.K. Television Personality Tracey Cox shares clever ways to improve your sex, relationship, flirting and body language skills.

“Each conference session takes attendees on a very real and personal journey” explains Jacobs. “Some speakers may make attendees laugh, cry, feel less alone while others reveal shocking truths stimulating them to pay more attention to what’s affecting them most.” During the women’s health panel, Phyllis Greenberger, clearly explains, “Whether a person is male or female matters in the prevalence and severity of a broad range of diseases … It matters at every stage of life — from the very beginning to the very end. It matters at every level — from the single cell to the entire body.” This view has historically been ignored by the traditional medical establishment, says Nancy Jacobs, Executive Director of the Society for the Advancement of Women. Being a survivor of the very rare disease Castleman’s Disease, then surviving breast cancer, knowledge of being BRCA1+ gene mutation, and through it all living through twenty-five surgeries, Jacobs more than understands the not-so-subtle differences Greenberger describes and advocates for needed changes in diagnostics and treatments for women’s bodies. “The tireless efforts from the Society for the Advancement of Women’s Health Research must be illuminated so all women understand their health and wellness hurdles” said Jacobs.

After the intellectual and emotional conference experience, attendees have the option of finishing the two-day event with a relaxing yoga class with nationally known yogi David Romanelli while participants sample delectable truffles by chocolatier Katrina Markoff of Vosges Haut-Chocolat.

In addition to the conference, ample time is left for attendees to stimulate all of their senses in the conference exhibition hall with over 250 products and services.

The Society’s mission is to improve women-based research, education and advocacy in the areas of women’s health, personal security, emotional connectivity and communication.
