Empowering Women to Break Barriers

By identifying the negative thought patterns and damaging beliefs that hold them back, the approximately 60 women who attended the Breaking My Boundaries Conference in 2019 began to break those barriers and transform their lives.

Participants described the day’s activities and speakers as “amazing” and “uplifting.”

One woman said she learned how to be her own encourager. Another said the conference helped her shed negativity from her past. A third said she found camaraderie among the other women in the room and discovered she was not alone.

Lori Au, a counselor at Ashland County Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, said ACCADA could not have brought the conference to Ashland without the grant from the Women’s Fund of Ashland County Community Foundation and support from other local entities.
