FEMINIST BUSINESS SCHOOL
CAN A BUSINESS BE FEMINIST?
WHAT WOULD THAT REQUIRE?
LET'S FIND OUT
We offer classes and workshops that empower entrepreneurs to build purposeful and sustainable businesses that embody their values. We believe in the tenets of the feminist movement. We embrace feminine principles of ease, experimentation, pleasure, and play. We exalt integration and embodiment as we quest to build businesses in harmony with our body, the earth, our communities, and our beliefs. We are committed to growth and expansive consciousness.
We endeavor to topple the patriarchy, internally and externally. We see business as a site of personal power, radical creativity, and meaningful social change. We know that we can survive and thrive in business without compromising our values. We believe work can be fun. We hold fast to our declaration that
A BUSINESS CAN BE A MODEL FOR A NEW SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC ORDER.
CONCEPTS & CONCEPTION
8-WEEK ONLINE INCUBATOR
This is an introductory course for those wanting to birth a new business, or a new way of being in business. In this eight-week intensive, participants gain a deeper understanding of how to embody feminine and feminist principles in business. We dive into the concept of the Feminine Economy, contemplate capitalism, cozy up to feminist theory, and consider what feminist entrepreneurship could look like. Next, we reconsider what a business is, and explore the stages of birthing a business, giving special attention to the Conception phase—the beginning—where anything is possible. Finally, we start to dissolve our patriarchal thinking as we rewrite our relationship to money and power.
This was a life changing experience. I learned so much about the economy, business, feminism. But most importantly, I learned about myself. If you feel out of place in the Capitalist economy, you'll likely feel at home here. — Tina C
VISIONS & VALUES
12-WEEK ONLINE COURSE
There is no template for feminist entrepreneurship. An out-of-the-box solution doesn't exist. In Visions & Values we engage the radical imagination as you envision a business the embodies your beliefs, enlivens your purpose, and fulfills yours' and others' needs. Together, we will journey into the realm of alchemy, pleasure, possibilities, and magic as you connect with your business's greatest contribution. In this course, you gather the elements of your feminist business and compile these into a Vision Handbook, which serves as a foundational document for your business.
EMBODIED BUSINESS PRACTICE GROUP
When we show up to work, many of us leave our body's needs at the door. In this class we develop physical practices that you can integrate into your workday (and your life) to help you access more ease, confidence, nourishment, and enjoyment within your business. We meet twice a month through online video to explore and access the resources and support of our bodies. Each class is a mixture of gentle movement, useful information, reflection, and group sharing centered around a theme.
Jenn helps us gather tools OUTSIDE the patriarchy, so we can tear it down with some efficacy. These tools are already within us, they are us. We have been so disembodied that we have picked up the tools of the patriarchy to survive, this is about rediscovering our resilience, our natural resources, ourselves; and in doing so, we find the strength to create a new way of being in the world and in business.
