With change comes great opportunity. Essentially Women is incredibly excited to provide more education than ever before at this year’s Focus Conference. When planning Focus Conference, we usually consider the conference venue and time constraints when scheduling our sessions.

Focus: The EW [Virtual] Conference will offer 8 live sessions beginning Monday, Jan. 25 through Thursday, Jan. 28, 2021. Sessions will be at 10 a.m. CST and 1 p.m. CST. There will be time before, in-between and after the sessions for you to visit our virtual exhibit hall. Each education session will be recorded, so if you are unable to make each session, you can catch the recorded session when you schedule allows anytime between Jan. 29 to Feb. 28, 2021.  

In addition to the 8 live sessions, we will also be offering more than 10 additional on-demand courses, all with CEUs. All sessions speakers can be found at focus.essentiallywomen.com/speakers, but here are some of our highlights.
