Agata Nowicka (Female Foundry Founder) took to the stage with 4 Iconic Women: Patience M. Chigodora (Healing and Spiritual Coach), Lina Chan (Parla Founder), Laura Tudor (Centred Founder), and Yamna Elsayed (Femtech Society Co-Founder) who shared a conversation covering topics such as:
- When do you ask for help?
- How do we as women get better at asking for help and being vulnerable?
- How to identify when you are stressed?
- How to deal with stress?
- How can we as women be better supporters of other women?
Each of our speakers shared their personal experiences and stories, offering our guests a peek into their lives and how their journeys have led them all to where they are today. This important conversation was then opened up to our audience who shared their perspectives and helpful tips to help manage stress day to day. Each woman in the room was invited to take time to reflect on: 3 things they felt grateful for, 3 things they like about themselves, and 3 women they appreciate in their life - to encourage a moment of mindfulness and calm. This helpful exercise is a great way to encourage a positive dialogue with yourself and to help your inner voice be kind.
Our guests were then invited to “Build your own Birchbox” or as we like to call it “BYOB” where guests could pick 5 beauty treats from some of Birchbox’s favourite brands (such as Balance Me, Percy & Reed, Nuxe, and Arrow) to take home in our “We all deserve to feel iconic” Birchbox and special tote bag. Followed by drinks and canapes and most importantly networking - it was an evening of women supporting each other, celebrating one another, and building relationships we hope will last a lifetime.
We want to thank our partners Female Foundry and our wonderful speakers for having such an honest, open, and important discussion. And finally, the amazing women who attended as our guests (some of you subscribers) we loved being able to share this evening with you - and look forward to many more events in the future!
