Event Description
Chrysalis Conversations 2017: Erin Kiernan

The 2017 Chrysalis Conversations Speaker Series kicks off with Erin Kiernan 


Nothing used to surprise Erin Kiernan - she has anchored the evening news for WHO-TV13 for years, becoming a reliable voice for vital information.  What did surprise her, however, was an ill-mannered response to her Facebook post as a new mom, launching Kiernan’s recent crusade against body-shaming.  She’ll share her approach, her persistence, and her tireless campaign to all women and girls.    

The Adventure continues... be sure to check out the great Chrysalis Conversations Speakers in March & April too! Packaging pricing is available.

Denise O’Brien – Farmer and Founder of Women, Food, and Agriculture Network 


Decades of commitment to organic farming and sustainable agriculture prompted Denise O’Brien to create the Women, Food, and Agriculture Network in 1997.  Many recall her campaign for a position as Iowa’s Secretary of Agriculture in 2006, a campaign she nearly won in a field dominated by men.  Learn how she balances farming, organizing, advocating, and helping like-minded women in Iowa’s primary industry.
