The Dairy Girl Network (DGN), an organization supporting all women in dairy by enhancing lives and creating opportunities, announces events taking place during this year’s World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin.
DGN is excited to bring back the Family Lounge to World Dairy Expo. Located on the second floor of Exhibition Hall, right up the elevator, the Family Lounge provides a much needed quiet space for families and new mothers. Amenities in the Lounge include two private nursing/pumping areas and a fridge for temporary storage, a diaper changing station with supplies, toys and play space for little ones and snacks and drinks to rest and recharge. This quiet space is perfect to escape the hustle-and-bustle of Expo for a little bit. A Lactation Consultant will also be making appearances to answer any questions. The Lounge will be open 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. October 2 – 6.
Once again DGN will be hosting its annual Connect Networking Event on Wednesday evening. Join us on October 3 from 5:30-9:00 p.m. at our new location at the Sheraton Madison Hotel, right across the street from the Expo grounds. The evening will consist of networking, catching up with old friends and connecting with new ones. Come to learn about the fast growing Dairy Girl Network and make some life-long connections. A light dinner will be provided.
DGN’s last event of the week, Sharing Wisdom, will be taking place on Friday, October 5 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.. The Sharing Wisdom Educational Seminar combines a presentation by professional speaker, farmer and author Jolene Brown as well as some networking time. Jolene Brown will be bringing valuable content, real life examples and a whole lot of fun as she covers “The Balancing Act: 10 Ideas to Relieve Stress and Bring Renewal to Our Farm and Family Life”. During this presentation, guests will learn three benchmarks to check your “balance”, realistic min-breaks that renew and bring a smile, seven balancing lessons from continuously productive people, two tests to define “urgent” and “crisis” and much more. All are welcome for this educational seminar.
Registration for the Connect Networking Event and Sharing Wisdom Educational Seminar are now open. Those interested can visit https://dairygirlnetwork.com/world-dairy-expo/ to learn more and register. DGN asks that those who plan to attend pre-register by September 28 to secure their spot and swag.
