Retreat FAQ

Is Within a conference?

Within is intentionally designed as a retreat, not a conference. We believe in the power of creating an intimate environment for our participants to connect, share, and explore together. This does not mean it’s vacation. It is an investment in yourself as a leader and beyond.

How many womxn will attend Within?

In the spirit of creating an intimate environment, our retreats range from 60-90 design leaders.

Who is Within designed for?

Within is designed for self-identifying women and non-binary people in design leadership roles across startups and tech. We include product, brand, research and writing in our definition of "design.”

Each retreat brings together a community of peers.

  • The emerging leader community spans senior individual contributors to managers with a few years of experience.

  • The senior leader community includes managers with 5+ years of experience in roles such as Senior Design Manager, Head of Design, Creative Director, and VP.

Can we (our organization) sponsor a retreat?

Yes! We’re looking for 2020 partners. Drop us a line.

I have a meeting during the middle of the retreat. Can I attend part of the week?
