BA.Women (and men!), it’s been over a week, and we’re still smiling ear to ear about last week’s event. There was dancing. There were connections like no other. There was even an uproarious laughter about the plight of owning and figuring out a diva cup. It’s the little things, you know?
Our lovely emcee, Giselle Ugarte, kicked off the event with a bang with unapologetic honesty and a solid reminder that just about anyone can randomly ask about your Google search history. We got a warm welcome from both BA.Women founder Emma Sievers and Wynne Reece of The Creative’s Connector, getting a peek at the night’s agenda with a hearty dose of hype—and some kickass visualization—to get us ready. Brand activations from WeWork and TriNet offered some seriously IG-worthy spots to pose, with endless opportunities to connect with local BA.Women from different spheres. "How Can I Help You?"
BA interviewee Aneela Idnani told us her amazing story behind the formation of Habit Aware, changing the lives of thousands who struggle with self-destructive behaviors like hair pulling and nail biting. If you haven’t checked them out yet, absolutely hit that hyperlink! Special thanks to our Creative’s Connector panelists: Andrew Dayton of Askov Finlayson & The Constellation Fund, Kristin Woxland of 10 Thousand Design, and Joe Peters of Vasque Footwear (Hello Red Wing Boots season). We’re still thinking innovation in startups...and fall shoes. To all who made last Tuesday so special (that’s every single one of you), we can’t thank you enough, and we’re ridiculously jazzed to welcome all fresh faces to the community. Cheers to being unapologetically you, new frontiers in careers, and of course—celebrating badassery together as one big community.
