Following last year’s theme, “The Shift,” this year’s theme is ABUNDANCE.

“ABUNDANCE — within each womxn lies everything she needs. An overflow of wealth to guide and fuel her as she moves throughout the world and brings her vision to life. To do this, she must be clear. She must move with intention and be on purpose. She must have an ABUNDANCE mindset.”
