Join us for our rescheduled inaugural FemmFluence book club. We will have wine, snacks and discussion about a book all women in business and leadership should read, Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg. Your Event Ticket includes: - Wine / beer / cider available for purchase - Small bites - Riveting Discussion about all sorts of things related to your business - Q&A with Hannah (our Book Club Facilitator) - Discussion and ideas about the direction of our book club and which books you would like to see. If you would like to get a head start on our next book for Wednesday May 29th, we will be reading and discussing How Women Rise by Sally Helgeson. This book will round out our discussion on Wednesday May 8th with Lyn Cikara.
- We are pleased to be joining Sally in her beautiful space on N Williams. We will be gathering as a group of female entrepreneurs and business owners to have dinner with Sally and hear her story as she moved from here to NYC, Hong Kong, (with a pit stop in France), and then back home to PDX again. - Fika Cafe and co-op came from a realization that women are really unsupported here. That it’s so hard for small makers to gain a foothold. It comes from this idea that if we start supporting each other and working together, we can be exponentially more successful than if we tried to do it all, and figure it all out, on our own. - The philosophy of Behind the Femm: To learn from a fellow FemmPreneur and to also visit her in her business, see the inner-workings, the behind the scenes, if you will. We will get an interesting business story, and a great dinner. Sally will also receive an opportunity for us to hold a mirror to her business and help HER with something she may be struggling with or be looking for advice on.
