Welcome to Beyond Rubies 2017!
March 2-3, 2017, The Hotel at Kirkwood Center

Whether you’re a first-time participant or you’ve been coming for the past 35+ years – we invite you to join us to experience an unforgettable event guaranteed to inform, inspire and empower.


Beyond Rubies is a conference for women of all generations and backgrounds to learn practical ideas on how to succeed, while juggling increasingly complex and diverse life demands. You will be engaged in an exciting, fun and inspirational atmosphere, where women come together to network. This upbeat, two-day conference will have professional development and personal growth topics. Each day will feature a keynote presentation and attendees will have the opportunity to attend three breakout sessions of their choice.


The conference will set the tone for building better lives while enjoying the journey. The focus will be to provide information on a full range of issues – in the workplace, at home and in the community.

We encourage you to attend this year’s conference and participate in the wonderful opportunities Beyond Rubies 2017 has to offer. We look forward to seeing you in March!
