October 16th marked the 11th Annual Pennsylvania Conference for Women, uniting 8,000 women together at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. One of the incredible keynote speakers, Candy Chang, served as an inspiration to all attendees with her global “Before I Die” project that showcases stories of hope and community throughout the world.

The ladies of Quattro were honored to attend the conference and take part in a day packed with motivating speakers, panels, workshops and thought-provoking sessions that have left lasting impressions on all of us.

Jane Pauley truly set the stage for the day by leaving us with the following quote at the end of her keynote:

“Inspiration is everywhere but you have to be looking.”

Well, Jane, those on Twitter were looking, listening and spreading inspiration globally this year.
