Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be an entrepreneur to join?
You don’t need to be an entrepreneur or have any curiosity about starting a business or idea. This workshop is relevant for anyone in the process of a career transition/transformation, feel stuck in their career paths or choices and are not sure if they are doing what they are called to do, have a new idea to pitch to their community, want to celebrate themselves in an intentional way with a supportive community, feel lost and need a supportive community to reflect what they might not see in themselves. The purpose of this design lab is for you to create an intentional space to gather information and inspiration for your next move!
When does the series course start and finish?
THIS SERIES WILL START on July 6th and end with presentations on August 17th & 24th. Our second day of presentations will be dependent on the number of participants.
How long do I have access to the course?
One year after the series ends.
What is "Self Guided Material"?
Every Monday before Thursday’s lab, a corresponding course will be uploaded to our online learning platform, Teachable. The online courses are self-guided and can be reviewed at your own pace and schedule. The courses include reading, reflection prompts, and worksheets that will be used in the following Thursday lab.
We recommend reviewing the course prior to the lab to optimize your experience in the session, but it is not required.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days after you purchase and we will give you a full refund.
Is this series only for BIPOC providers or inclusive of White identified providers as well?
This space is open to all community members and targets those within our respective networks, which often are BIPOC and other systemically marginalized groups. We aim to empower everyone with a series that will amplify the leadership in each person so that they can show up fully for their communities they work with. We tend to appeal to the BIPOC community and establish safe spaces for those in most need to heal through and process the impacts of colonization and white supremacy on themselves and those communities being served.
Are there any ways I can still participate if I can't afford any of the pricing options?
We are committed to serving all providers to have access to this amazing opportunity. We consider this series a professional development service, and encourage you to first reach out to your employers or colleagues for support. We also encourage you to reach out to your community and/or family to support your growth and development.
What does “online” mean?
We utilize a few different technology tools to maintain communication with the cohort and facilitators along with sharing the training information. These tools include: direct email, Teachable (training material & program info), Google calendar, & Zoom.
Can I still participate if I am outside of the Bay Area?
Yes! This series is open to all in most time zones. We use Pacific Time (PT) and Eastern Time (ET) as points of reference on our schedule.
