The team at Pollen know how to put on great events! Their Work Redux series is one that does a great job at looking at work culture.
Their upcoming event is focused on CARE. Their description says it best:
"On top of managing careers, running businesses, and leading organizations, women are caring for their families, children, and communities. It’s work that often goes unnoticed and is underappreciated. It risks their own advancement and well-being.
At Work Redux | CARE, we will hear from women leaders who have experienced the hidden and visible effects when careers and caregiving collide. Whether it’s in the form of caring for children, co-workers (who orders the birthday cakes, who clears the dishes?), aging or sick parents and family members, how, in all of these dynamics, do we preserve care for ourselves? Together, we will imagine a future of work where the burdens and joys of caregiving become visible and, even more importantly, valuable."

Listen up! Banking is a word we all hear and quickly move past. We are so fortunate to be partnered with one of the B E S T! Our dear friend Susan Anderson is the Senior VP of VisionBank in St. Louis Park and is truly one of our biggest fans. Her commitment to our org and as a sponsor for our forum event are at the heart of our success and growth. So now when we hear the word bank, we jump for joy! ... As VisionBank says - "We’re not a traditional bank – we’re experienced entrepreneurs, professionals and investors. And we know what it’s like to have a vision and dream to bring to life. So whatever you want for your business, look to VisionBank. It’s possible here."
Cheers to the holiday weekend! Early bird tickets are over, and we have limited full price seats left.
As if we haven't packed the house full enough yet, we have one more intro for our speaker lineup. Meet Susan, she will be speaking on Creating a Resilient Business. Susan Keller has been advising businesses and their owners from startups to sale for over twenty-five years, as a lawyer and as a business advisor. Susan’s skills, experience and expertise are complimentary to those of a business owner who is entrepreneurial and wants to scale and grow their business and can be the bridge between the vision of the founder and the execution of a plan.
Another shout out to one of sponsors for the summer forum event. We couldn't pull all of this together without Jackie @integriprint and everything she does for our organization. Women owned and leading design + print studio in Buffalo, MN servicing the entire west metro. Y'all ... think swag bags! We got 'em and we're packing them full. #bwcforummpls
