SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (February 22, 2018) – Felicia Houston will be the Keynote Speaker for the 2018 Chicago Women’s Conference on Friday, March 16. The event will be located at the college’s Main Campus in South Holland, Illinois.

Her credentials include more than 20 years of experience in the mental health field, a BA in Psychology and an MA in Human Development Counseling from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. Houston is also the Community Development Liaison for UChicago Medicine at Ingalls Hospital.

The 2018 event is the tenth annual Chicago Women’s Conference and will include opportunities for networking and learning. This year’s theme is “Be Your Own Superhero!” and women will have opportunities for networking and learning. Over 15 speakers will cover topics such as Personal Empowerment, Health & Wellness, and Business & Finance. A Women in Leadership panel will give attenders an opportunity to hear from women who overcame challenges and are making a profound difference in their communities.
