As summer winds down and we transition into fall, we consider it one of our very favorite times of the year—and not only because school is back in session. September also marks the arrival of our In Good Company conference—which takes place on Friday, September 27th, in San Francisco.
Like our previous events, the third-annual conference is focused on creative, entrepreneurial women and mothers—a demographic that we’ve seen explode over the last 5+ years of launching Mother. In Good Company serves as a gathering space for women (and many babies!) from all over the country—and abroad—to discuss womanhood, feminism, motherhood, business ownership, activism, and so much more. Trust us, it’s a day not to be missed!
This year’s line-up includes some Mother favorites, including Phenomenal Woman founder Meena Harris, Cushnie designer and new mama Carly Cushnie, Vintner’s Daughter founder April Gargiulo, Darling Clementine and Still We Rise founder Lindsay Meyer-Harley, streetwear queen Melody Ehsani, WIE (Network) founder Dee Poku, power-VC Kirsten Green of Forerunner Ventures (investor in Glossier, Outdoor Voices, and others), return speaker Erica Chidi-Cohen of LOOM and Nurture fame, and many more soon-to-be-announced boundary-breaking women.
We’ll also have a special keynote on a topic so many mothers today struggle with—the patriarchy at home. Darcy Lockman, NYC-based clinical psychologist, mother of two, and author of All The Rage: Mothers, Fathers, and the Myth of Equal Partnership, will be giving the enlightening (and quite possibly enraging) talk, which is sure to get a standing O.
As always, our on-stage action at In Good Company will be rivaled by a whole lot of off-stage fun. For lactating mamas or those with babies in attendance, they can take a load off in the Mother’s Lounge hosted by Pottery Barn Modern Baby, as well as borrow a DockATot and Solly wrap throughout the day. UPPAbaby will also be showing off its latest set of wheels and allowing all guests to easily give back to another mother in need.
Delicious bites and drinks will be served throughout the day, thanks to spreads by Miyoko’s, Oat Mama, Once Upon a Farm, Methodology, and Bi-Rite (the iconic S.F. brand will be bringing its brand-new ice cream truck!). Plus, coffee by Lady Falcon and beverages of the adult variety by Sutro Wine Co. and Hanson of Sonoma will fuel us through our closing cocktail party (and VIP receptions).
All guests will enjoy plenty of freebie products and important period and sex-ed from LOLA, mini-massages by our favorite local spa, International Orange, pose with other revelers in a gorgeous flower-bombed photo-booth, and have the chance to be snapped by Mother for our annual street style feature, amongst numerous other perks and surprises!
Did we mention everyone will leave with an overflowing gift bag filled with over $200 worth of goodies (for the GA ticket) or $400 worth of goodies (for our VIP ticket), including this super versatile luxe leather crossbody bag/fanny pack by Lo&Sons?! Bonus points: Phenomenal Mother tees and other goodies that benefit Families Belong Together will be available to purchase.
While you’re waiting for September 27th to roll around, be sure to check out our coverage from our 2018 conference and 2017 conference, plus street style from year’s 1 and 2 for a preview of what’s in store!
