The Women Like Me

The Women Like Me Luton & Beds Conference

It’s 2020 and we we’re determined to make this year’s conference even better. To remove any potential issues we took it live on Zoom and the date was Saturday, 20th June 2020. The theme was From Feeling Fear to Feeling Free and it was amazing!

We looked at the fears that are most common to us women as shown below…

Along with those other ones Jasmine had;

  • struggling with fear of rejection so you don’t put yourself out there?
  • fear of failure so you won’t even try?

We also considered that in life we face life’s tough challenges, such as sickness, bereavement etc which can leave us nervous and anxious. Or that might be in a difficult place and are unsure or afraid of what to do.

Fear affects each of us in different ways, nevertheless what unites us is that we have all felt fear. Fear may have held us captive but we wanted and still want to be free. It was all about reclaiming your freedom. Listening to the stories of women who had and who were doing just that.

Still wondering if you are a Woman Like Me???

Take a look at this video…

The Women Like Me Luton & Beds Conference was a time of encouragement, empowerment and inspiration. To miss it, really was to miss out. What Jasmine realised after the event is that this conference is all about telling the hidden stories that make us who we are and using those stories to empower other women so they can keep on moving. Pretty amazing right? So there were many who wanted to attend but for whatever reason were unable to do so. Jasmine’s passion for making a difference to as many women as possible means that she’s up to something. We will be releasing a sneak peak of the conference soon as well as an opportunity to watch the #Replay of the ENTIRE event.  Want to make sure you get those details first, then register here.

The first ever event was in May 2018 put on by Luton Council. Last year we took the baton holding the conference on Friday, 14th June 2019 at Venue 360 from 9am to 5pm. It bought together over 70 women from all walks of Luton life, all faiths, all ethnicities, all ages and they were empowered, encouraged and inspired as indicated by the feedback.

The Saturday Cuppa

So, where can we go to get together and have a good chat, laugh, be encouraged and share and solve some problems on a monthly basis for FREE?… I don’t know….So we created that space and place. With lockdown restrictions having eased we’re moving to a monthly meeting albeit virtually. So join us at 10.20am on the third Saturday of each month starting this month, August. Come back in the next couple of days to get your Eventbrite ticket. We look forward to seeing you there 😉.
