Work Redux brings together hundreds of women spanning diverse backgrounds to reimagine the future of the workplace. This event sparked a much needed conversation about how we use our voice in formal spaces to express our points of view, garner respect, and influence the world.

Nonprofit and philanthropic leaders dug into the foundational fears, challenges, and alternatives facing the nonprofit business model at June's Sustain-A-What? event. Pollenites discussed how we can evolve beyond the grace of philanthropy towards a rally cry of sustainable giving—pivoting our sector to become more adaptive in creating market-based strategies to earn new mission-supporting revenue.
