ADA, OK -- Close to 400 women gathered on East Central University's campus today to participate in Ada's third annual Women's Conference.
The event took place at the Chickasaw Business and Conference Center.
Women came together to discuss and learn about topics focused on empowering women in their careers and at home.
Speaker, Patty Hendrickson, says it's important for women to have a day for themselves to bond with other women in the community.
"This conference delivers great content, but the validation of I am a woman who has skills, talents, and passions, and I need to harness them to serve my community, my family, and my workplace, and that's the mission," said Hendrickson.
Hendrickson says more women have been attending each year, and there were no empty seats at the conference this year.
