Women in Language 2022

Join us for our fifth Women in Language, an online event created to champion, celebrate and amplify female and non-binary voices in language learning.

Passionate about language learning?

About culture? Education? Social topics? Equality? Self-improvement? Holistic learning?

We are too, and that's why we (that's Kerstin Cable, Lindsay Williams, and Shannon Kennedy) are back hosting our fifth Women in Language conference.

This March, join us in celebrating the many voices of language learning.

You want to learn more about different perspectives in languages, how to experiment with languages and delve into new techniques, and hear inspiring stories about other language learners and communities across the globe. And you want to connect with others who share your love of languages.

We do too.

The global situation that's become the new normal over the last couple years has put more distance between us than before -- we're craving connection.

Women in Language is an event where you can connect, find inspiration, and learn.

But that's not all Women in Language is. It's a platform to champion new and lesser heard voices.

Now more than ever, it's important for more voices to be heard.

You may have noticed that the majority of the well-known polyglots online are male, that expert panels and line-ups can be dominated by these voices. The media in particular pays more attention to male experts, even though the language field is full of females, too.

---

That's why we do things a little differently, introducing...

New voices. Fresh perspectives. And a conference like no other.


Welcome to Women in Language

Live from 4 to 6 March 2022


Without ever leaving the comfort of your couch, you can meet, collaborate, and connective with a supportive group of language learners through three action-packed days of panels, language practice sessions, and talks from an inspiring line-up of expert speakers with diverse backgrounds: polyglots, industry veterans, world travelers, teaching experts, academic professors, and innovators.

Not to mention--every speaker and panelist at this event is female, trans, or non-binary. Woot woot!

As a part of our fifth-anniversary event, we're putting 20+ female, trans and non-binary speakers in the spotlight.

Women In Language is a unique online event designed to champion, celebrate, and amplify the lesser-heard voices in language learning.

The event this year is happening Friday 4th March - Sunday 6th March 2022.

Oh, and you're going to have an amazing, inspiring, and motivating time.

 










Women In Language is curated to inspire and empower everyone who loves language.
While the event highlights female and non-binary voices as speakers, we invite everyone and anyone to join us as attendees.
For this year's event we gathered an incredible lineup of speakers to talk about three key aspects of language spanning the three-day event. We're all about perspectives this year!

  • Parallel Perspectives: Looking at holistic language learning and other aspects of our lives parallel our language learning so that we can use these areas to become better language learners.
  • (Re-)Connected Perspectives: The different ways languages connect or re-connect us.
  • New Perspectives: Innovative ideas and strategies for language learning.
We'll also have a few Dream Teams where multiple speakers have joined forces to create a powerful, collaborative presentation.
So whatever your gender identity, your language level (a beginner or an experienced language learner), and however language fits into your life...
This event will leave you motivated, inspired, and equipped with ways to improve your own language learning.
