Come to network. come to learn. Come to teach. Come to connect. Come to amplify. Come through. :)


— ON THIS SEASON’S THEME: FLOURISH —

flourish (n.): to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as the result of a particularly favorable environment.

When we make work under our best conditions, we do more than survive—we thrive. And what grow toward (or say no to) has a lot do with it. Whether you’re a small business owner, independent artist or creative leader, your career pathway will take resilience and strategic decision-making. Where do you choose to go? What makes something a yes? Which environments are best for your growth?

Throughout Fall 2019, our events and programs will amplify women and nonbinary creatives, business owners and leaders who are creating the best conditions for their work, projects, causes and collaborations. Click here to view our full event calendar.
