It’s that time of year again! Tickets for the second-annual In Good Company conference, focused on creative and entrepreneurial women and mothers, are now live! As media sponsor, Mother will once again be in the house, shooting our favorite looks of the day (check out last year’s In Good Company street style roundup for a refresher), and getting a chance to chop it up with hundreds of inspiring attendees in San Francisco.
Just announced today, the 2018 In Good Company speaker roster includes a group of mothers with compelling business stories in a variety of disciplines—from food, fashion, and tech to interiors, academia, and activism. Mother favorites and past profile subjects Mara Hoffman, Elise Petersen, Ariane Goldman, A-lan Holt, and Jodie Patterson will all be hitting the stage. As well as The Jungalow’s Justina Blakeney, ice cream queen Jeni Britton Bauer, Carol’s Daughter founder Lisa Price, veteran journalist and host Minya Oh, Chairish co-founder Anna Brockaway, Bee Shapiro of The New York Times and Ellis Brooklyn, and The Atlantic‘s Erika Hayasaki (if you haven’t read her piece on the neurological link between motherhood and creativity, bookmark it now!). More speakers will be announced here and on IGC’s Instagram feed in the weeks to come.
Topics covered this time around include Motherhood + Entrepreneurship (The Good, Bad, and Ugly), Motherhood + Creativity, Financing One’s Business + Securing Outside Investment, and The Importance of Diversity, Inclusion, and Representation (In Life and Business). There will also be a mix of keynotes, fireside chats, and plenty of off-stage fun. If you’re a mother or woman who owns her own business, is thinking of starting a business or is wondering “what’s next?” career-wise—or just really loves to be around other incredible ladies—we hope to see you there!
