About our Events

Wear your favorite power suit and join hundreds of women and men in your local community and across the country on January 9th to have a conversation.  We’re going to be breaking out into small groups to talk about the topics of Work/Career, Educational Opportunities, Violence, Family, Innovation, Environmental Issues and Community Leadership.  It’s truly a work session- so come ready to both listen and share and leave inspired and motivated. 

The goal of these events is to have deep conversations that facilitate solutions.  We’ll then be taking all the feedback from Suit Up events across the country and working to create businesses, networks, media, and policies that will take these solutions from ideas to action.

SuitUp Event Format

We believe that you know best what the issues are in your communities, so we are putting the agendas of your local SuitUp event in your hands.  


Event Goals: 

The goal of these events is to create actionable solutions that can be put into practice.  As an example, if the challenge was equal pay, solutions could be legislation, or it could be a partnership with recruiters to ensure when they place male and female candidates their pay is on the same level, or it could be a public website to report company practices, etc.  What makes SuitUps special is the encouragement to share ideas and think outside the box. 


Event Format: 

Every SuitUp will follow the same 2 hour format, but with diverse solutions and results.  

 

  • Speed Networking- 30 minutes
  • Challenge Discussion- 20 minutes 
  • Choose a topic category, like “women at work”.  (we’ll provide these!)
  • Propose challenges (like unequal pay or sexism from board members) 
  • Select which challenges your group wants to discuss 
  • Solution Conversations- 50 minutes 
  • Wrap up- 15 minutes 

What Happens After?


We’re hosting these all across the country and compiling solutions over the next few months.  Then, the magic happens.  We’re partnering with leaders in tech, business, education, and community leaders to turn the nation’s ideas into action.  Want an app made? We’ll find women (or men!) to build it.  Want legislation passed?  We’ll work together to find sponsors.  Want to bring inspiring women leaders to your local schools so girls can see that they can do anything? Let’s do it- we’ll help.  Together we’re going to do big things.  


Why Should I Attend?


SuitUps are a great chance to meet women in your community that share your passion and values, to impact your community, and to turn emotion into action. Plus, we promise it will be fun.  We encourage our SuitUp leaders to make the events special.
