Cubicles to Cocktails: The PowHER of Your Unapologetic Self

  • Etta's Kitchen 4212 Emancipation Avenue Houston, TX, 77004 United States (map)

Hosted by Freeing She, a Cubicles to Cocktails soirée is the perfect venue for ambitious women looking to connect with other driven, creative, and success-minded professional women. The goal of all Cubicles to Cocktails soirées is to curate alluring spaces for women of color who are success-minded to make meaningful connections, gain actionable insight, and learn new skills to cultivate her ideal career + lifestyle!

Our parents taught us that we "have to work twice as hard, to get half as far." So, we did.

We fought hard for that promotion. We started our own business. We earned not one, but two degrees. 21% of women of color feel that they cannot be "themselves at work" and 1 out of 3 of actively work to "tone down" our race or ethnicity to succeed. But let's be honest, who wants that seat at the table, if you cannot be your unapologetic self?

Join Freeing She on Thursday, May 17, 2018 as we learn how to show up as your unapologetic self and slay it, in the workplace or within your own business. 

At Freeing She's upcoming Cubicles to Cocktails soirée, you will have the opportunity to connect with other success-minded women of color, support women-owned and minority-owned pop-up shops, and enjoy a cocktail soirée. 

Following our cocktail hour, you will experience an empowering workshop led by Tracy Carmen-Jones, Founder and President of The WaterLight Group, one of Houston's leading leadership coaching and management consulting firms, where she will address the question: What does it mean to bring your authentic self to work and still ascend to leadership and gain success?
