Safety & Accessibility 

At the Connecticut Women’s Consortium, we put the health and safety of our staff, trainers, and customers first. That’s why we’re strongly encouraging all participants at the 2022 Trauma & Recovery Conference to mask up and practice social distancing. In addition, we will continue to monitor all regulations and guidelines from the CDC and the Connecticut Department of Public Health. Mask up and help us protect one another and the vulnerable populations we serve.
