HerDU aims to hear all voices from our community about how issues are felt, perceived, and addressed by all members of our community. We invite you to share your unique voice and join others as we create a new experience for the women of DU.


At HerDU, we will use our voices to speak about what makes us who we are, while being aware that our voice has the power to shape the experiences of others. We invite you to be part of an experience where we can gather without titles, rank, or preconceptions and share our stories to grow and lift each other up.


HerDU is intentionally designed to facilitate relationship-building among the women of DU: to encourage collaboration and innovation beyond the conference day, and foster a community of growth where we all attempt to better understand, support, and enrich one another in our personal and professional pursuits.
