BEHIND BRAID WORKSHOP
In the fall of 2015, Allison Lew gathered together a group of local women business leaders to brainstorm how to strengthen the women in entrepreneurship community. From that discussion, Braid was born.
The idea behind the name Braid is that one strand by itself can easily bend or break, but when you weave those threads together, they add strength to each other. We hope to see women connecting and adding strength to each other as a result of our skills workshops and networking events.
The 3 aims of Braid are:
1. Connect the women in our community so that we learn who we are.
2. Empower women to start, build, and grow entrepreneurial ventures and careers.
3. Create an encouraging and safe space for women to ask questions, learn, explore, and connect.
Even though the goal of Braid is to help women become economically independent, everyone is welcome to attend!
