the annual Work & Life Conference
A positive approach to finding freedom in professional work and daily life.
The Work & Life Conference is the pinnacle event of Yuma Center's mission to help women discover new perspectives on work and life that bring fulfillment and joy.
Our focus is on work and life, because we view each as inseparable and equally important parts of what it means to be a human person. Our goal is to offer inspiring ideas on how to live well, both professionally and personally. Our line-up of speakers and facilitators will inspire you and offer multiple insights on how they blend work, life, family and faith.
