Over the last 7 years, I have been asked by dozens of people why I created a community just for women. We chose to focus on creating a powerful network of professional women because there is nothing more intoxicating than a room full of smart, driven, outspoken women who are shaping the world around them.
Women have been gathering this way for centuries—in red tents and moon lodges, in hammams and quilting circles. We have joined hands and hearts and created collaborative opportunities for our families, neighborhoods, villages, cities and communities to thrive.
We have developed underground support networks. We have opened heavy doors for each other and broken glass ceilings together. We have nourished the souls of our daughters, sisters, mothers and grandmothers through cultural exchange. We have developed innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges with the feedback from our colleagues and peers.
The truth is, there is something magical about bringing women together. When women gather in collective consort there is nothing we can’t accomplish.
