The Women’s Institute for Leadership and Learning (WILL) presents a biennial conference called the Seneca Falls Dialogues, scheduled to take place between National Women’s Hall of Fame biennial Induction Ceremony events. When the Hall isn’t selecting and honoring a new class, WILL highlights the achievements of present and future inductees with women’s rights-focused programming that spotlights contemporary activists and thought leaders.
For the 2022 event on October 7-9, 2022, WILL presents Rematriation: Restoring Balance to Humanity. The weekend-long program will feature many speakers and facilitators, and introduce Haudenosaunee Confederacy perspectives on governance, self-actualization, and the sustainability of humans as a species, It is inspired by the work of Michelle Schenandoah, founder of Rematriation, a multi-media initiative that gives indigenous women a voice using film, digital content , community engagement, and through publishing the periodical Rematriation Magazine. Its founders, led by Schenandoah, are working to “shift narratives, defy stereotypes, and reflect on (indigenous women’s) own experiences.”
