Feminist Business School: Concepts & Conception

Feminist Business School: Concepts & Conception



September 24 - November 26, 2019

Concepts & Conception is an 8-week business incubator for anyone wanting to birth a new business, or a new way of being in business, founded on feminine and feminist principles. C&C is specifically developed for those who are brand new to business or who have been in business but are struggling to thrive (financially or creatively). Our innovative, cross-disciplinary, and immersive curriculum guides you through the creative process of conceiving your own unique enterprise. We provide you with a feminist framework for entrepreneurship and valuable tools for bringing your idea to life.

During this 8-week incubator, you will improve your feminist literacy and your understanding of what a business is. We spend the first half of the course immersed in Concepts—ideas, theories, perspectives, and scholarship to give us a feminist framework for entrepreneurship. We begin by diving into the Feminine Economy, we contemplate Capitalism, outline the anatomy of a business, cozy up to feminist theory, and consider what feminist entrepreneurship might require. In the second half of the course, we transition to Conception. Here we explore the sequential stages of birthing a business using pregnancy as an analogy, and give special attention to the conception phase—the beginning—where anything is possible. At the end of your journey, you embark upon dissolving your patriarchal thinking as you rewrite your relationship to money and power.

The curriculum encourages deep transformation in your relationship with work, money, business, your body and the earth. Through readings, audio recordings, group discussions, guided visualizations, writing assignments, and creative exercises, you will become more integrated and embodied as you conceive your own feminist business.
