The conference will be held Friday evening and all day Saturday, July 29-30, 2022. Please save the date and set aside this precious time for “Reconnecting with Each Other for the Common Good,” our 2022 theme.
The conference will feature dynamic speakers Ellany Kayce and Kathleen Gathercoal, as well as opportunities for online small group conversations and fun.
Ellany Kayce is an enrolled tribal member of the Tlingit Nation, Raven Clan. She’s interim director of the Nakani Native Program and has extensive experience as a speaker and workshop leader. Ellany will offer us a range of tools to begin understanding each other’s cultures and belief systems and diagnose the obstacles, to discern and resist colonialism in all its forms, and build a community where equity and honesty are heartfelt realities.
Kathleen Gathercoal will speak on the new wisdom of current research on how to recover and re-connect with each other and with our work out in the world. Empowered by these old/new ways, we won’t stay overwhelmed; we can use whatever advantages we have in society to raise up those who are in the margins. Kathleen teaches at George Fox University’s Graduate School of Psychology.
We expect that this PNWQWTC will open ways to connect, learn from, and share with women from a wonderful range of Quaker meetings and churches. If you have been waiting for a Friendly chance to reunite with old friends and make new ones, this is for you. Maybe you have others in mind who would welcome this opportunity; if so, please share or forward this to them.
Registration and schedule details will be forthcoming on our website, via email and at our Facebook page.
We look forward to re-connecting! We have missed each other! Questions, ideas? Email webmaster@
