"We remove barriers to belonging by creating communities where people thrive."


"This place where I meet myself, is the place where I meet you."

                      -Audrey Bellis, Founder

Worthy Women started with a vision and a belief that everything we do stems from a place of whether we "feel worthy" or are hustling to make others believe that we are.

Too often we play it small or safe, we talk ourselves down from our dreams and second guess our abilities. It's easy to forget that the possibilities we envision for ourselves stem from what we think we deserve. To build relationships, businesses, and find our creativity we must first accept and believe we are worthy of them, because we inherently are worthy.

We created our free monthly event series as a safe space for tech and creative entrepreneurial women to learn best practices needed for success. But also to create a safe space and supportive community of amazing women who dare to play by their own rules, forge their own path, and live their true self worth.

So ask yourself...

When did you realize you were worthy? When did you decide you were worth more than 'that'?


From backstage...

The team the makes everything possible.
