Grassroots Changemakers

Young Women Social Entrepreneurs (Bay Area) Annual Retreat

As each year comes to a close, we invite our community to a retreat in the San Francisco Bay Area for a weekend of workshops, talks, learning, and rejuvenation. This is an opportunity to connect with other women who are passionate about creating social and environmental change through social enterprise ("business for good") while learning how to best put their passions into action.

This year's theme, "Grassroots Changemakers," focuses on inspiring each attendee to understand her opportunity and calling to build community and work locally as a means to make social and environmental impact close to home, and person-to-person. While not overtly political, this theme conjures the image of what's needed during this politically charged time. It will allow us to showcase those among us who are working directly with their own communities through social enterprise.

Here is the agenda for the weekend, full of incredible women who will also attend the entire retreat as participants: 2018 Retreat Speakers

Throughout the weekend, we will also invite attendees to take part in the following non-presentation activities hosted by fellow participants:

  • Mindfulness workshop
  • Improv for community building
  • Guided cacao ceremony
  • Dance workshop

This is YWSE - Bay Area's signature event and there are many opportunities for learning, participating, and engaging with this group of inspirational women. The ticket price includes all activities, dorm-style lodging for two nights, and six delicious meals served buffet style (accomodating every diet), all within the extraordinary beauty of the Marin Headlands.

IN AN EFFORT TO BUILD COMMUNITY THROUGHOUT THE EVENT, WE REQUEST THAT TICKET PURCHASERS PLAN TO ATTEND FOR THE ENTIRE DURATION (FROM FRIDAY EVENING TO SUNDAY AFTERNOON). UNFORTAUNTELY, IF YOU CANNOT ATTEND THE WHOLE TIME, WE PREFER THAT YOU NOT REGISTER TO SAVE SPACE FOR OTHERS THAT CAN JOIN US IN FULL. INSTEAD, WE HAVE MONTHLY EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR THAT WE HOPE YOU WILL ATTEND INSTEAD.


Register today as space is very limited. We look forward to seeing you this November!


Our goal is to provide scholarships for select women for whom the retreat fee would be cost-prohibitive. If this applies to you, please fill out the scholarship application found at the link below. Scholarships will be awarded on a rolling basis, please apply early as funds are limited. Scholarship Deadline: Friday, October 12 11:59pm.
