Can I invite a friend?

Absolutely!  All women of color are welcome.  You can forward the link to this page.  Each participant does need to register separately, so make sure she reserves her spot before we sell out.

What should I wear?

Where your crafty pants - you know the ones that are super comfortable?  We are going to be cutting, pasting and dreaming all day, not to mention chowing down on some great brunch fare, so dress comfortably. Leave the heels at home.

Can I register and only come to part of the event?  Why is this vision board party so long?

While we would love to have you for any part of the day that you can join us, the full program does begin at 9am and includes tons of resources and exercises to aide you in creating your board and crafting your vision. This is some serious “me time” so don’t sell yourself short.

Can I bring my kids?

Nope.  This event is for grown ladies only.  Leave your kids at home and spend some time focused on you.  You deserve it.

How do I get to BKLYN Commons?

The event space is on the second floor of the BKLYN Commons building.  If you are in NYC, take the B, Q or S to Prospect Park and you will see the building directly across the street when you exit on Flatbush Avenue. Cross streets are Lefferts Blvd and Empire Blvd/Ocean Avenue.  If you need more direction than that, Google Maps girl!  Take the elevator or the stairs to the second floor and follow the Femme Totale signs to the Washington Room.

Is the venue wheelchair accessible?

While BKLYN Commons itself is wheelchair accessible, the room we have reserved is up in a loft space that does require you to climb a few more steps (less than 10) in order to access.

I’m a nursing mom.  Can you accommodate my pump schedule?

There is a single stall bathroom that can be used for pumping if you need it.  We are not able to reserve it, but you are free to excuse yourself to use it whenever you need to throughout the day. We also have access to refrigeration so be sure to bring proper labelling and storage.  Please reach out directly to us here if you plan on pumping.

I have dietary restrictions.  Who should I reach out to?

Vegetarian and vegan options will be available. E-mail us here if you have dietary restrictions that we should know about for brunch.  We will do our best to accommodate.  

I bought a ticket but now I cannot attend.  Can I gift iT to someone else?

Yes, you can.  Please forward your email reservation for the event to the woman who will be taking your seat. We will collect the rest of her registration details when she arrives.

What is your refund policy?

All sales are final after January 6, 2018. 

How long are the style consults and coaching sessions that are being offered?

The style consults and coaching sessions are each 15 minutes in duration.  Marie and Kathleen will try their best to accommodate as many people as possible during the day. If you don’t get both of your consults during brunch, you will be able to schedule another date to redeem either of your consults.

What is the Femme Totale?

The Femme Totale is an exclusive group for women of color seeking high quality mentorship towards their complete self. We learn together, we network, and we leverage and share resources that many would not otherwise get access to. This means deeply discounted intimate workshops, roundtables with women at the top of their field, panel discussions, workouts, cooking classes. . . any and everything to help women of color get more seats at the table and slay all the way there.

Will there be more events like this in the future? How do I stay informed?

Yes! The January Vision Board Brunch is our 2018 kickoff event.  If you completed your registration you have opted into our mailing list.  If you can’t join us on January 13, you can opt in to learn more by signing up here.
