Hub Activities

Unwind with a chair massage! Massage therapy students from Ivy Tech will be helping participants relax at Summit with a short, therapeutic massage. Make sure to register first, as conference badges will need to be shown to receive a massage. First come, first served. Enjoy!

While you unwind and network at the Hub, you can test your knowledge on the scientific, technological, and extraordinary impact women have made on the world with our women's history trivia. This Kahoot trivia game will be available for your enjoyment and inspiration throughout the Hub's open hours.

At this year’s Summit, we would like to provide an opportunity for you to give back to our local community, so we added a service project as a drop-in activity in the Summit Hub. We will provide items to make a nice welcome gift for women coming into Middle Way House’s shelter for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Participants can come to the Summit Hub to assemble a welcome bag and write a note of encouragement for the shelter resident. The completed welcome gifts will then be delivered to Middleway House on behalf of our Summit participants after the conference!

Not enough service for you? There is another opportunity for you to help the local community. Donations to the women of Shalom Center in Bloomington are being collected at this year’s Summit. We wanted to provide items that women often ask for, but that are rarely donated to Shalom. Shalom staff report that women in the day shelter often ask for beauty items like makeup, nail polish, fragrant lotions, etc. because they want to feel pretty. These are also the first items to go and so there are rarely such items for women to use. This is a great opportunity for us to provide these products for the women of Shalom. If that wasn’t enough incentive, your donation gets you an entry into a prize drawing!

Please feel free to bring any unused or unopened:

  • Nail polish
  • Hair brushes
  • Hair barrettes
  • Perfumed lotion
  • Make-up of any kind
  • Small jewelry items

You can drop off your donations on Friday at the registration table, or on Saturday in the Summit Hub. Thank you!

Create STEM thank you cards for women who have helped and/or inspired you. Jen Hoffman from the Monroe County Public Library will host this activity hand making a paper circuits card that lights up for that woman that provided help or guidance in your educational or professional life. Jen will help you create the card and answer questions about the local library. Stop by her table and pick up some book lists that will focus on women authors and women’s empowerment. In this activity, you can make a card and find a new inspiring book to read!
