Just because it didn't work, it didn't mean you failed.

A lot of us often think, “What if I started a business..." or "What if I quit my job..." At our fourth town hall, we listened to women who shared their stories of turning those "What if's" to  “I’m doing it” and learned what it truly means to take the plunge.

Speak Up & Give Less Fucks

The worst part about Imposter Syndrome is that we tend to believe we're the only ones who suffer from it. Our goal with this town hall was to show that a) we're not alone and b) there is strength in numbers. Over 100 women attended and together we shared not only our struggles but ways we can combat feeling like a fraud so we can give less fucks and GET THAT SEAT AT THE TABLE.

Negotiating a salary or raise can be transactional, and if we don’t get what we want, we do not have to feel personal rejection.

Recap: San Diego Kick Off Town Hall

This is a recap of our first town hall in San Diego on March 7, 2017. The night featured mingling, connecting, and an opportunity for our six panelists to share what they’ve learned on their journeys navigating the professional community in San Diego. There was a common thread tied throughout that we must continue to lift each other up through active networking for self and for others — encouraging healthy discussions in the workplace, and being real about the amount of time we want to give versus the amount of time we have to give.
