Within Fall 2018
Accomplished women. A beautiful environment. Space to connect, reflect, and discover. These are the key ingredients of Within, an immersive four-day experience for a select group of emerging design leaders—senior ICs, design leads, new managers, etc.—in technology.
Purposefully intimate, participants will exchange ideas, learn new methodologies, and practice mindfulness to access intuition, wisdom, and creativity. Our intention is to enable women to return home feeling their most resilient—equipped to live and lead from Within.
What to expect
Leadership is a craft rooted in who we are as individuals. Creating time to reflect and discover is not only pivotal to our success, but it’s essential to lead authentically and courageously. With just enough structure and plenty of breathing room, the experience is designed to have an impact on participants well beyond the retreat.
Experience and perspective are invaluable gifts. Prepare to give and receive through a series of fireside chats and leadership workshops in the company of the industry’s emerging leaders. Together we will exchange ideas, fill up on inspiration, and find new ways forward.
There are few things more satisfying than creating from a place of inspiration. We will harness the power of our creativity, whether that means night time photography, shibori indigo dying or hand block printing. Remember what it’s like to get lost in the flow of making.
If we can really listen, we find that there is so much within us to discover. Daily yoga, nature hikes, guided meditation. Whether you’re a beginner or have a daily practice, there will be many ways into the art of being present...and plenty of time to process what comes up.
The in-between time is where the magic often happens, especially when you’re in the company of powerful women. Whether you’re enjoying a delicious meal together or lounging by the pool, we know real talk and, therefore, real connection will ensue.
