Event description

Description

In partnership with Whole Foods Market H Street, join Athleta Brand Ambassadors Paige Elizabeth and Merideth VanSant for a female driven panel and Q&A session with prominent Washington DC female founders, investors, launchers, and scalers. These women have started, scaled, or sold companies and believe there is no better time than now for women to pave their own paths to success. Join them as they'll talk to you about how.

In this morning together, hear their personal experiences with:
• Walking away from the well-trod path, even when it means forfeiting scholarships, tempting job offers, and the approval of friends • Following their passions in male-dominated fields • Knowing when the moment is right to make the plunge • Failing and using failure as a roadway, not a roadblock to success

Coffee is provided, but come early or stay late to grab breakfast from the hot bar or a smoothie bowl from the coffee bar. Panelists outfitted by Athleta, whose mission is to ignite a community of active, healthy, confident women and girls who empower each other to reach their limitless potential.

Panelists:
Jessica Carson, Entrepreneur in Residence at American Psychological Association
Biva Ranjeet, co-founder of Wunder Garten at NoMa
Kathleen O'Keefe, co-founder of Up Top Acres
Ariel Pasternak, founder Pineapple Collaborative

Location: Whole Foods Market H Street (second floor, upstairs pub)

9:00 am - 9:15 am: Registration & coffee
9:15 am - 10:20 am: Panel discussion and Q and A
10:20 am - 10:30 am- Final networking, coffee, and word from Whole Foods H Street and sponsors
