Project Description

This crowdfunding campaign is to better serve our growing community. It starts with you, it continues with HER. 

HER USA is the North American arm of HER Global Network: a community that connects conscious, driven and impactful women in 19 global cities on a local scale. Every HER event will uphold our three pillars for each woman-identified: the power to be vulnerable, unfiltered, and connected (both to yourself and others).

It's time for HER 2.0: we are making it official to better serve the community. This funding campaign will allow us to introduce the new HER USA membership model and propel HER into the next phase with dedicated resources for consistent programming. We're excited to announce the new membership model will first roll out in NYC. 

Let's get started!

It is our great honor to introduce you to HER:

 

 

Dinners: HER dinners are the core of this community. We curate diverse guest lists of inspiring women and facilitate Jeffersonian-style dinners where each guest's 'ask' drives the conversation. 

Panels: We facilitate quarterly forums covering important topics such as egg-freezing, cryptocurrency and fundraising with professionals in each field.

Breakfasts: "Yoga and an Ask" is our breakfast model on the weekends: where wellness meets professional asks in intimate, confidential setting. 

Wellness Events: We partner with studios in NYC, giving HERs exclusive and private access to fitness with a self-growth component. 

Gala: We host an annual gala bringing together 200 of our members together for one, unforgettable celebratory evening. 

HER has been a passion project for the past three years.  Without funding we have gathered women to connect, learn from each other, support and empower each other.  We're now taking the next step for HER to make an even greater impact.  Let's change the norm for women together.  It starts with you, it continues with HER.

The Project FAQs

What is HER?

SHER USA is the North American arm of HER Global Network: a community that connects conscious, driven and impactful women in 19 global cities on a local scale. Every HER event will uphold our three pillars for each woman-identified: the power to be vulnerable, unfiltered, and connected (both to yourself and others).

 

Why HER?

HER is reimagining what networking means today. In a world where everything is available at our fingertips, humans are more disconnected from each other than ever before. HER exists to foster authentic connections and does so through facilitated events and experiences. HER facilitators creates safe and trusted spaces for members to remove their filters and connect authentically through embracing their vulnerabilities. Through these types of real, unfiltered experiences, women don’t just network, they connect as humans and as a result become advocates for each other’s personal and professional success moving forward.

 

What type of events do you host?

Dinners

HER dinners are the core of this community. We facilitate Jeffersonian-style dinners where each woman’s ‘ask’ drives the conversation and fosters personal and professional growth.

Panels, Breakfasts, Wellness Events, & our Annual Gala

From egg-freezing to cryptocurrency, we bring relevant topics to the women of HER and find the experts in those fields to educate the community.

“Yoga and an Ask” is our breakfast model where wellness meets professional asks. Hosted on weekend mornings and aimed at helping founders and executive HERs discuss professional asks in an intimate, confidential setting.  

Wellness events are partnered with studios in NYC, giving HERs private access to some of NYC’s most sought after fitness experiences, always presented with a dose of connection.

It’s not a party without HER: our annual Gala brings 200 of our members together for one, unforgettable celebratory evening.

 

Can only women donate?

Absolutely not! We welcome support from anyone who believes in our work and mission.  Women-identified can become members, but we also allow memberships to be gifted to a women-identified friend, partner, or coworker.  We also have an option to make a general donation for anyone who wants to support HER and the women behind it.

 

When will we receive our rewards/when will our membership activate?

Your membership will activate September 1, 2019.

 

What will you be doing with the funds?

Since 2016,  HER has been operating on volunteer time and favors from friends. We have come to a point where HER demands more time and resources to best serve the existing community.  Our promise to the community is to build a foundation that is sustainable for the long run.

To ensure the most connected member experience, the funds collected will be used for full-time hires to better serve the community and member needs, by ensuring members get access to the right types of events, at a consistent frequency and connected to the right people within the community. This fundraiser will allow us to do more of what we have been doing but in a more consistent and organized fashion.
