What is a Cocktail Huddle?

The Cocktail Huddle is our vision for women in a relaxed, no-pressure, fun atmosphere, meeting at a wine bar, craft brewery, cocktail bar, restaurant or event space, to share skills, stories and insights about work and life, inspiring one another and building strong connections and allies. The Cocktail Huddle will be limited to 25 women only, so the first 25 women to RSVP for the Cocktail Huddle will be able to attend. Attendance is free.

Surprise! We have been working on a secret for the last few months and are finally ready to share it with you all! Come see the first edition of our brand new merchandise now being sold on our website.
