Nope! While the Summit is a multi-day event, it won't be hosted through the night. Here are the hours we'll have active programming: Friday 6pm - 8pm, after party at Abigail Hall Saturday 11:30am - 7pm. An evening happy hour will follow! Sunday 10:30am - 6pm
But I live out of town! Where do I stay?
Our hotel partner, Woodlark, is totally stunning and generously offering a discount to Upper Left Ladies in town for the Summit! 🙏🏻 Use code UPPERLEFT to get 20% off your stay!
Can I come and go?
We'll have short breaks between our workshops, so if you need to leave, there'll be space to do so! We'd encourage you to remain for the full Summit for the best experience, but we understand that sometimes life happens.
Is it okay if I come late or miss a day?
Sure! If you can only make one day of the Summit, or can't arrive until later/need to leave early, we get it. However, we only have one ticket option; we aren't offering single-day passes.
But—what if I'm not an entrepreneur?
Our Summit was created for women who want to expand their careers and horizons—not just business owners. Maybe you have a side gig that you want to expand, or you're looking to take the next step in your career. Maybe you're struggling to find direction in a world saturated with choices and aren't sure what comes next. Maybe you're new to the area and trying to connect with like-minded, driven, positive women. The Summit is for you.
Upper Left Ladies was originally founded to create a support network for girls out there chasing big dreams. That hasn't changed, some of us just got a little older. 😘 We have switched industries, quit jobs to pursue passion projects, grown freelancing gigs into small agencies, gotten jobs only to find out we didn't want those jobs. 🤷🏾♀️ And at every step of the way, we've had a group of seriously cool chicks cheering us on, listening to us vent, proof-reading our scariest emails... and that's what this is about. Seeing yourself reflected in the world so you don't feel so alone. Understanding your ambitions are real, and possible, and f*cking awesome. And that's why we built the Summit.
So, if you are hesitating joining in because you have a 9-5, allow me to disabuse you of the notion that this Summit is "not for you." Actually, the fact that you got this far into a 300-word rant on a subpage, but are still wondering if this is For You™️ is EXACTLY why you should come! (and definitely why you would benefit from a few of our workshops.) I am an actual woman sitting here, writing this FAQ page, and I want to meet you. Seriously. Even if you can't make it to the Summit, come out to any of our events. Slide into our DMs and introduce yourself. Consider this an invitation, because Upper Left Ladies is for you, and you are welcome here.
Will the Summit be recorded?
We'll have some photographers on-deck to capture our community and the vibes, but we won't be recording the workshops. It's a one-time only experience!
Will there be food?
We'll be serving lunch on Saturday, and a continental breakfast on Sunday. You're of course welcome to bring snacks as you need or a lunch of your own, if you prefer.
What is the schedule?
We're still finessing some of the finer points, but we'll have a locked-in Itinerary out soon! In the mean time, here's a rough sketch:
Our Friday night panel at The Woodlark Hotelkicks off at 6pm, hanging out at Abigail Hall afterwards. Saturday opens with 11:30am check in at The Weller Society, followed by welcome lunch at noon, 3 inspiring workshops, culminating in an evening happy hour sponsored by Stoller Wines. Sunday begins at 10:30am with a yoga flow and guided meditation, followed by continental breakfast, and 2 more workshops. We'll wrap at 6pm!
Is this your first Summit?
Yes! And we are sooooo excited! We have an amazing volunteer team bringing their skills to the table in order to make our first-ever Summit possible—and we've gotten such great feedback that this will likely be expanding into an annual event, with tons of room to grow. Attending ladies can say they were at the inaugural Summit!
What should I bring?
Your sweet self! We'll have everything you need for workshops, but you'll want a yoga mat for Sunday and maybe a towel or change of clothes if you'd like—we'll heat up!
What should I wear?
Friday: your fave, confidence-boosting, after-work-drinks look! Saturday: whatever you'd wear to meet a girlfriend for brunch. 💁🏼♀️ Sunday: something stretchy (and maybe a comfy quick-change if you're worried about gettin' sweaty)
