#SQUADBETTIE: Desserts and Divas

Desserts and Divas brought together GR women from every corner of the work world and encouraged them to mingle, shop from local businesses, and (as per Mod Bettie standards) of course TALK. ABOUT. REAL. SHIT.

Squad Assemble!

What do you get when you bring together an army of brave, bold, and beautiful Betties? You get #SquadBettie. And then what do you get when you gather the squad and add desserts, some bad ass vendors and a photobooth? You get THIS amazingness:

A Bettie, a Bettie, and a Bettie walk into a bar.

Let's be real, networking can be hard. Whatever it is you call work, it's always important to make connections and find sources of support, inspiration, and camaraderie in the community around you. But how?! It's so easy to "heart" someone's post to show support, or to stalk their account for inspo from behind a screen. But we challenge women to network in the flesh. Shake hands, exchange business cards, mingle! Ask questions and take notes with one hand, while eating a mini bundt cake with the other. That's how!  There's nothing more empowering than complimenting another woman's accomplishments to her face.

Join Squad Bettie!

An exclusive online community for women supporting women.

 Vodka welcome. Vulnerability encouraged. You've probably seen posts, read the comments and heard statements like, "Selfies are so vain," "Why does she take so many pictures of herself?" "Who does she think she is?" *THIS IS WHERE WE WAVE A GIANT RED FLAG IN THE AIR AND SAY, UH-UH, SISTER. NOT HAPPENING ON MY WATCH.* In a society that puts a camera in every hand but is quick to shame the selfie, our mission is to empower women by creating a safe and supportive environment for female self-expression. So help me vodka. Fact. (<-- Said in the voice of Dwight from The Office) A Squad is a collective whose parts make a whole, complicated, dimensional, and beautiful. Raise yo' hand if you've ever been steamrolled by that nasty little two-headed shit-monster, JUDGEMENT. *wipes sweat from your brow* *prepares you to go back in the ring* Yea us too. All of the sudden all the amazing parts that make you whole are dissected and judged leaving a big gaping whole in your soul. But the thing is you aren’t parts. You are a totally BETTIE. The whole package. A real fucking human being. And we need you. Because although we are occasionally outspoken and often brave, sometimes we need the stiff hand of a righteous Bettie to pull us through our self-sabotaging shit. *Quietly raises hand* We are perfectly flawed and have created this community for our friends, acquaintances and companions. For love, because always for love. This is a place for women to discuss, and find support, re body positivity and female empowerment. Please feel free to share resources, get support, post something you’ve found inspirational, or just chat with someone who understands what you’re going through.  SquadBettie stands for Fempowerment, true acceptance, and building a supportive community. A true Bettie builds women up instead of bringing them down.
