SelfCareCon was founded by Nicole Hickman, It is a conference dedicated to assisting women of color with self-care practices & concepts. Self Care Con was created to honor her courageous sister's last request of her, which was to take better care of herself. Its goal is to provide a safe and supportive platform where topics such as nutrition, physical, mental and sexual health, as well as stereotypes, workplace stress, and financial literacy can be discussed. Just like you, Nicole has trouble putting her health and wellness first. She thought starting a conference like this would help her, to be more accountable and increase her wellbeing.
When SelfCareCon was started, there was one goal; to transform how women think about and prioritize their self-care. The thought was to build a community of women who can come together and support each other in practical ways to practice wellness. Constantly motivated by our goal, vision, and philosophy, we are committed to offering a broad spectrum of programs through professionals who work tirelessly to make a critical difference in our ability to fulfill our mission.
It is quite common for women to prioritize their career, business, family, social life and often neglect the need for self-care. At Self Care Con, we want to change that through
Educating: Through research and experience, we bring attention to the issues affecting women and show practical ways and reasons to invest in self-care.
Empowering: By leveraging our resources and investing in power-packed programs, we empower through educating women to take action no matter how small to improve their self-care and overall wellness.
