Join us in Fredricksburg, Virginia for The Gathering: a five-hour, content-packed, intentionally-designed event created specifically for young women in business. We’ll take an open, honest, inside look at the successful businesses of two rising industry leaders, and you’ll walk away not only buzzing with ideas and excitement for what’s next, but equipped with the practical steps to get there. 

We believe there's no reason to wait to pursue your passion. This is your time, you have a place, and these are your people, so come find community and inspiration in a room filled with likeminded dreamers and visionaries walking the same journey as you are.  It's never too early to start.

Great places to visit are Carl's (famous ice cream), Foode (delicious breakfast & lunch), Castiglia's (Hope's favorite Italian spot!), Monkee's (a beautiful boutique) & walking down Caroline Street!
