Networking is hard and weird. Meeting casually in a no pressure environment like this happy hour (we hope) is a way to network as people who care about the same things. Ideally there would also be cats, but I haven't figured out how to make that part happen yet.
In March we're checking out a new spot in Somerville, Remnant Brewery. This month we're raising funds for You Good, Sis. You Good, Sis is a collective for black and brown women looking for a mental, physical and spiritual check in. We strive to define and a create a specific space dedicated to the wellbeing of women of color. We are most proud of the people who consciously choose to be part of the community and continue to show up.
The event is free but we're asking for a suggested donation of $5 (cash or Venmo). We'll also be raffling off a $25 gift card to Remnant Brewing!
All are welcome! Please invite folks.
