GVSU Panhellenic Association is partnering with Tina VanSteenbergen to host GVSU PERSIST. PERSIST is a conference specifically for the collegiate women leaders of the world badasses who are working to make their people, their community, and themselves better. This event is open to all students. RSVP is required and can be done here. To find out more information and to hear from Tina click here.

Through this conference, participants will:

1. Develop the confidence, communication skills, self-awareness, and resilience you need to continue making a difference in the world.
2. Demonstrate the power of your individual and collective voice.
3. Take up physical, mental, emotional, and verbal space in the world without apology.
4. Cultivate community through authenticity, truth, and meaningful conversation.
5. Honor the badass within you.

Tina Rae VanSteenbergen is a professional speaker and facilitator with over 9 years of badass experience working with badass women. She's a boss. She also knows it's bold to call yourself a boss in your own introduction, so here's the proof: she played the oboe for over 8 years. She ran for student government all four years of high school, and never once won. She spills food on her shirt every single time she eats or drinks something. She still knows all the words to High School Musical--all three of them. She believes in the Loch Ness Monster and thinks you should too. She loves the snow, a great nap, baseball, and her family. But mostly, she loves women. She doesn't even know most of you yet, and she already loves you. She may not take herself all that seriously, but she takes her work seriously. Tina is on a mission to help women feel less alone in the world, and she's here today to help us do just that. So, buckle up!
