Wellstruck Lady Boss: Politics in Business (Philadelphia)

  • Vault + Vine 3507 Midvale Avenue Philadelphia, PA, 19129 United States (map)

Women business owners are invited to join us for this intimate gathering centered around a roundtable discussion. We loosely moderate so each attendee gets to ask the group a question, and the group discusses each question for five minutes. When it's your turn, the whole group focuses on helping you. It's all about learning, sharing, and building genuine relationships in a casual, welcoming atmosphere.

Theme

Politics in Business

We host a #WellstruckLadyBoss event every month, and each month has a different theme that serves as a catalyst for conversation. This month's theme is a discussion topic: politics in business. Do politics belong in business? What are the pros and cons of keeping your political beliefs separate from your business? What political and economic power do we as business owners have? How can we use our businesses to model or create a better world? How can we model a new economic order through our businesses? You need not be an expert in politics to attend — you just need to be interested in discussion, asking, and listening.


Who It's For

Women Business Owners

Women business owners and freelancers! Please take note of this month's theme (above) to ensure it's relevant to you. No membership is required; we typically have half first-time attendees and half repeats, and we pride ourselves on making newcomers feel welcome. 

We use an inclusive definition of woman and female and we welcome all womyn. 

Please note that hobbyists and reps for multi-level-marketing companies (e.g. doTERRA, LuLaRoe, Thirty-One) are not an ideal fit for this event.


What it's like

An Informal Roundtable Discussion

We limit attendance to 12 and send you the full guest-list in advance so you have an idea of who's coming (which may help inspire your question!). We encourage guests to arrive 15 minutes early to purchase a drink, poke around, then make their way to our private room. When everyone is settled in, we kick things off with casual introductions. Then we dive into a loosely-moderated discussion. We kindly ask that all guests plan to stay for the full two-hours.
