GIRLS WHO WORK IT_Poster 3.png

Get your jokes on with host Sara Benincasa (comedian, author, and internet hero who has also been in her underpants on, Jean Grae (international hip hop sensation and just released "That's Not How You Do That Either: Yet Another Instructional Album For Adults”) and Sue Smith (one of the 10 Funniest Women in NYC, according to Time Out New York) as they share stories about being a woman and working it, at work or just in their day-to-day.

Trust me, we all need some R&R in the form of gasping with laughter while nursing a beer and jabbing an elbow into the ribs of your pal standing next to you. The lineup will also have funny ladies Carolyn Castiglia, Mindy Raf and Katina Corrao, all at the really beautiful Liberty Hall, downstairs at the hip Ace Hotel, so you definitely don't want to miss this.

Doors at 8:00 PM, show at 8:30 PM. Cash bar!

Lady Boss: Maybe I’ll Start Saving When I’m 70 with Galia Gichon


Oh, just a little personal finance workshop with finance guru Galia Gichon. Now we know you might not want to but you know you need to. Because as women we do have different financial needs (hey, we live longer, get paid less, tend to take time off, and sometimes don't make savings a priority). So, with this workshop you will:

• Get your money organized – see where you are today and where you want to be
• Clean up your credit 
• Create a weekly spending plan, set concrete goals with dollar amounts and timelines
• Develop a plan for automatic savings
• Understand mutual funds and retirement plans
• Learn about financial resources to keep helping you on an ongoing basis

Galia Gichon is an independent personal financial expert with more than 19 years of experience in financial services, including nearly 10 years on Wall Street and an MBA in Finance. She founded Down to Earth Finance, where she offers individual sessions and seminars to address personal financial needs and concerns. Her speaking includes Freelancers Union, Barnard College’s Financial Fluency Program, and Athena Center for Leadership. She has been quoted in CNN, The New York Times, and Wall Street on her tips for managing individual finances.

Find Your Career Compass with Michelle Ward

BarkBox HQ
221 Canal St 
New York, NY 10002


When you're able to clarify and articulate what makes you unique, why you're valued, and what you want to be known for in your field, you can create your own career compass that'll lead you to being a proactive Lady Boss and getting more of what you want.

Lady Boss presents a career coaching workshop with Michelle Ward, CPC, PCC, and the When I Grow Up Coach, at the BarkBox HQ on Tuesday, January 27, 7-9 PM.

During this 2-hour workshop, Michelle will help you develop your own career compass, like a personal spirit guide to kicking butt at work. You can use your career compass internally to guide you to make the right career decisions, and externally to speak to your boss, make connections, update your resume, and more. 

Lady Boss is beyond pumped to be scheming alongside Michelle Ward – she's a full-time creative career coach who has worked with hundreds of creative people to discover and achieve the passionate career they didn't know they could have. She has one of Forbes' Top 100 Sites For Your Career, teaches the 2nd highest-viewed course on CreativeLive’s Craft & Makers channel, "Create Your Dream Career," and is the author of The Declaration of You: Find It, Own It and Shout It From the Rooftops (North Light Books, 2013). You may have also spied her in NYMag!

You are SO boss. It's the new year and it's time to get serious. Join us – limited space available, so hurry! Come create your career compass, and start to take action for your career.
