If you’d like to listen to what WWC is like and how it works, take a listen to Episode #186 of the podcast. In the episode, I cover:

  • The design of the program, from connection calls to business breakout sessions to drop-in sessions.
  • Why we have five calls a month—but you pick three. (We offer extra time slots, new this year, so more people can make the calls in their schedule.)
  • Why Voxer is so amazing, and how it works.
  • A sneak peek at some of the guest teachers we have this year.
  • Who joins, and what the other women are like.

The Startup Parent Podcast — Episode #186

Last year’s Wise Women’s Council was amazing. Full stop. Here’s what some of our alumni have said:

“It made me feel seen and less alone.”⁠

“What I didn’t expect was just how expansive WWC was for me. The people I met, what I learned both about myself and the world – it truly expanded what I thought was possible about working parenthood.”⁠

“WWC brings these incredible women together, and you form relationships over 9 months that approximate the closeness of many-years-long friendships. You learn things about yourself that you didn’t know before. You unlock ways of understanding the world outside of where you were before”⁠

“There is no way to describe what it feels like to be validated. So much of being a women and more so a mom makes one feel invisible. In this space I felt seen and heard by really smart, funny, and fearless parents.”⁠

THIS is what the alumni from WWC have said about what The Wise Women’s Council is like. 

Applications close March 1, 2022.  Apply at startupparent.com/wwc.
