Money is power. It's self-worth. It's value. It's also really uncomfortable to talk about. Come join our town hall where women will share their work war stories and together, strategize on how we can better advocate for ourselves and each other. At each town hall we ask our panelists to share their stories, and then we open the discussion to the room, and encourage everyone to share or ask something.
And if you needed a reminder of how important it is to talk about this...
60% today's college graduates are women but less than 24% of us make it past middle management. Only 4% become CEOs for Fortune 500 companies. Black female entrepreneurs generate $44 billion a year in revenue. 2% receive VC funding. If you look at the decision makers in every industry, it's nowhere close to parity. We need to change this.

Can men attend?
Sorry, not at this event. We do welcome cis women, trans women, and non-binary/gender nonconforming folks.
Can we bring our children?
We know finding childcare can be hard (and expensive!) so you're welcome to bring your kids. Feminism can never start too young.
