More than an event, it’s a movement.

A Day in Her Shoes is more than an event; it’s a movement. Created by Lori Stone, A Day in Her Shoes kicks-off with an interactive, engaging, regional, inspirational experience. Held on March 8th, 2024, International Women’s Day, the date was chosen with purpose and intent, to inspire, encourage, and motivate women. For some, inspiration may mean a new career, for others it may mean exploring leadership, volunteering, or public office. The options are limitless.

Participants will be exposed to opportunities and careers that in the past, they may have never considered. Talented and exceptional women from throughout the greater SouthernCalifornia will gather for this day-long, immersive experience. Science, engineering, hospitality, non-profits, medical, culinary, agriculture, viniculture, public service, first responders, elected office – women that wear all these shoes will share their different success paths. Participants will learn that each path requires a different pair of shoes. Finding the right fit takes exploration, curiosity, mentorship, hard work, motivation, connections, and it can be very challenging. Knowing where to search, especially for young women, women changing careers, women re-entering the workforce, or women wanting leadership positions can be difficult. Bringing our region’s female talent together with leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, and policymakers is a winning formula.

Ticket price includes parking, admission, immersive experiences, food, beverages, inspiration, mentoring, motivation, encouragement, leadership, program and more! Proceeds from the event provide Oak Grove Center education and career-related programs funding.

“I firmly believe that with the right footwear one can rule the world.” – Bette Midler
