August // New Member Summer Soiree

IT'S TIME TO INVITE NEW MEMBERS!

We're super excited to welcome new members into our collective at our next event on August 6th, and we need your help recruiting! Twice a year (January + August), we onboard new members from our waitlist into the group.

Why do we do this? We we want the group to be a space where like-minded women can connect openly and intimately about issues large and small. We want current members to feel like they are forming meaningful, personal and professional connections with each other at repeated gatherings. 

Do you know a Bay Area-based, fellow lady food professional whom you think could both benefit and contribute to proof? Consider a personal reach out to a friend, peer, colleague, or heck, even a professional crush and refer them to our JOIN page. It never hurts to ask! 

We welcome all committed, dedicated, honest women in food regardless of race, sexual orientation or background.

April // MINDFULNESS FOR THE SENSES

We're all busy, bad-ass ladies in the food industry, who every now and then need the opportunity to relax and rejuvenate. Our next Proof session will be entirely experiential. We'll drop into a collective meditative experience in the gorgeous space at The Assembly. 
 
Sylvie Charles, a physician trained in mindfulness-based stress reduction and a background in mindfulness and neurology research, will guide us through a body-based meditation. This meditation will focus on enhancing sensory awareness, specifically touch, hearing, and (most importantly for us), taste. 

Special thanks to The Assembly for hosting us in their amazing Mission space. The Assembly is a space for women to gather, move, learn, and create. The afternoon will begin with a group meditation in the the Studio, followed by a gathering in the Clubhouse for wine and light bites.

March // EDIBLES ENTREPRENEURSHIP

The next wave of wellness is edibles entrepreneurship. There has been a new influx of new cannabis-based businesses (legally!) popping up all over the city. This versatile plant is being used in food, beauty products, and more. Let's get together to talk about the healing benefits of marijuana, and how it is transforming businesses. 
 
Join us at Noise 13 for a panel discussion, learning about the entrepreneurial journeys and product lines from several inspiring women in the space. Come ready with your questions about the medicinal and recreational uses for women, particularly in the culinary realm.

Revel & Rouse is a destination for women interested in exploring and enjoying cannabis as a part of their lifestyle.

Dovana Delights makes artisanal cannabis infused caramels made in San Rafael. 

Oara makes probiotic and cannabis infused organic dark chocolates. 

Curious Cannabis Salon offers cannabis experiences focused on the health and wellness uses of medical cannabis. 

Juna is a cannabis collection of tinctures crafted in California with a farm-to-table philosophy to optimize pleasure — physically, spiritually, and gastronomically.

February // VISION PLANNING

Crafting a Vision Plan is the exercise of writing out a detailed description of what success will look like for you at a particular point in the future. Let’s inspire each other and ourselves, and articulate what we want out of our work and our lives this year.

Alli Ball, of Allison Ball Consulting, will guide us through this exercise at everyone’s favorite Mission wine bar, 20 Spot. Below, Alli explains why vision plans are beneficial. 

Why create a Vision Plan?

  • It forces us to articulate what we want out of our business & life
  • It holds us accountable for those goals, and guides us in the decision making process by helping us figure out what to do, and more importantly, what not to do
  • It helps us create a reality instead of being reactionary in our work
  • It has a great impact on others- it shows partners & employees their own opportunities within the company & can help attract good people and patrons

Must be a member to attend. Please see our 'Join' tab for more info on membership!
