- Get Tickets
The 2017 Chrysalis Conversations Speaker Series kicks off with Erin Kiernan
THE PERILS OF POSTING
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.

Learn how she balances farming, organizing, advocating, and helping like-minded women in Iowa’s primary industry.
