Banner Brunch 2018 >>> Sisterhood is Powerful.

Banner Brunch 2018 was a chance to honor not only WCA’s own milestones, but also the many trailblazers who came before us to create a path where there was none and the many more today who continue to carve out space and communities for the future in innovative ways.

We had a star studded lineup of speakers, including Jane Claire Hervey of #bossbabesATX and Laura Donnelly of Latinitas


We had a distinguished list of honorees, each sharing what sisterhood and community means to her.

You can hear more from our past honorees on our Youtube channel.

The more we include others, the better we are together. And on this journey of life, it’s better when we work together.
