WELD Columbus Leadership Series Featuring Congresswoman Joyce Beatty
Aug 15 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, representing the 3rd District of Ohio knows well the mountains women have had to climb and the glass walls and ceilings that women have had to break in order to get a seat at the leadership table, and once there, be able to participate and influence the conversation.  She is no stranger to the kinds of challenges women face moving up the leadership ranks, establishing and growing businesses and making their voices heard in economic development and inclusion strategies in their communities.
Despite the barriers to advancement she has faced in her professional journey, she has stood up to lead and believed in herself regardless of any naysayers. Her message to women is simple: You will make your impact if you are engaged, speak up for what is right, be confident, work hard, and don’t let anybody else make you doubt yourself. She encourages women to lead in government as well as STEM and other fields. Congresswoman Beatty served as the first female House leader in Ohio, but after breaking through that and other barriers, this is her philosophy: even if you are the first, that doesn’t matter unless there are others coming up behind you to follow in your footsteps.
Join WELD for an inspiring and exhilarating program with none other than THE Congresswoman Joyce Beatty on Making Your Impact.
Registration closes at noon on August 10th! Late fees apply after registration closes. Contact Mindy Koenig at mkoenig@weldoh.org if you have questions.

Mastermind Series
Aug 21 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 pm

Can we be real? Sometimes owning your own business sucks. Sometimes you’ve got a million decisions to make and no idea which choice is correct. Sometimes you feel incredibly lonely. Sometimes you feel like you’ve got a bunch of people rooting you for your success, but no one who is quite as invested in your business as you. Sometimes you just need to chat it out with people who are in the exact same position as you.
We’re Kaylee and Sarah — and this feeling of business unrest is the basis of our entire friendship. We started going on monthly coffee dates together a year ago to commiserate about being business owners; now we rent a studio together. And we believe that one of the things that continues to propel our businesses forward is the insights we glean from our conversations. We talk about what’s not working, what we can improve, and why it’s hard. We celebrate each other’s successes, and we figure out what we can learn from each other’s failures. We keep checking in, every month.
When we dreamed about finally getting our own studio together, we envisioned it being a place that women could get together and talk about business. Sure, there’s hundreds of mastermind groups out there, led by coaches and entrepreneurs and people who have been in the game way longer than us. But not by people in our city, working in the same market that we do. Not by people we can chat with face to face, in a room full of women. We want our mastermind to be a peer-to-peer group where no one is the leader, and everyone offers insight.
What it is:
A monthly group meetup that will center around a pre-selected topic relevant to small business owners. One person will lead the group in exploring this topic and provide an activity (an exercise, worksheet, etc) for the group to do. Then we’ll all chat about how this topic manifests in our own businesses and offer advice to one another based on struggles that come up for each of us. We will limit attendance so the meetings can remain more intimate and everyone has a chance to participate.
*This month’s topic will be BOUNDARIES & EXPECTATIONS, led by Kaylee & Sarah.*
Who is it for:
Small business owners who are seeking comradery, feedback, and love chatting about business. This mastermind is intended for women with established businesses. (If you’re just getting started with your business: congrats! We wish you lots of luck getting your business off the ground — hope you’ll consider attending once you’ve gotten a little experience under your belt.) Please feel free to reach out if you have questions whether your business is a good fit for this event.
Details:
Coffee and breakfast baked goods will be provided — for those of you who prefer your coffee specialty drinks, Third Way Cafe is three doors down from the studio. Street parking is available. Doors will open at 9am if you want to get here early for socializing time; mastermind activities will begin at 9:30am.

We Create Columbus
Aug 21 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our city is growing quickly, both in size and in the national spotlight. Columbus’s growth is due to the continued leadership of incredible individuals, organizations, and companies helping to keep the capital city smart and open.
Join the Create Columbus Commission for an evening to celebrate the work of some of Columbus’s young leaders. We’ll showcase how they are helping to create Columbus and share how we can work together to keep creating the city we want to live in.
Food and drink will be provided courtesy of Hai Poke and Actual Brewing.
This event is made possible through the work of the Create Columbus Commission and the support of Beam Dental. The Create Columbus Commission recognizes, advocates, and funds young professional leadership with a focus on economic prosperity, urban pulse, and co-creation.
Beam Dental is building the future of dental insurance here in Columbus, setting down roots in 2014 with support from Drive Capital. Since that time, they have expanded to 16 states, grown to a team of 40, and plan to add 75 new members over three years.
