ABOUT US

We are a group of people committed to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment to celebrate and elevate those who identify as women.

Over the past 4 years we have been hosting small scale gatherings and as our community grew, we knew we had to expand our offering! We have seen firsthand the magic that happens when women come together to share knowledge, skills and passions. It is deeply transformative and our biggest hope is that The Get Together becomes a place where you can return year after year to connect deeply with yourself and others in this meaningful way.

We aspire for this to be a space for you to be seen, heard and acknowledge in the complexities of who you are. To learn tangible skills, gain valuable knowledge and to build lasting relationships that grow into business partnerships, mentorships and life-long friendships.

All you need to do is show up, and trust that your wisdom, whether derived from life experience or years of study and practice is worth sharing.

OUR CORE VALUES


 

Collective Contribution

Icon_Collective_Contribution_1.png

This is at the core of what we do. In attending The Get Together you are no mere “attendee.” You are an active participant in every sense of the word, co-creating our vibrant community through wisdomsharing. The entire festival is based around a non-hierarchical philosophy that what we create together holds the power of fostering a movement! We welcome you to join us and contribute in ways that excite you and makes you feel alive. You are enough, together we are infinite!


Radical Inclusivity

At The Get Together, we strive to provide every attendee with an experience of love and belonging. We aim to create a supportive environment based around unconditional acceptance and a purposeful celebration of diversity. We use the word radical because the success of our festival rests upon a commitment from each participant to show up, non-judgmentally, exactly as they are and to welcome everyone else to do the same. Collectively, we are acknowledging the beauty of our differences, and how with each of our individual strengths, we can lift each other up and help one another to thrive.


Lasting Community

Our goal is for this annual festival to feel like a second home full of friends where you are comfortable to offer and receive love, support (emotionally, psychologically, spiritually) and where you learn tangible skills, gain valuable knowledge and build lasting relationships that grow into business partnerships, mentorships and life-long friendships.


Sustainability

Respect for the environment has been deeply rooted within our team since day one. We consider the Earth in every decision we make and are taking steps to ensure that this event is as waste-free as possible through education, strict environmental guidelines and by partnering with local, environmentally conscious organizations.
