Align is a multi-use space located in Boulder, Colorado that facilitates female leadership, community, and creativity. This platform seeks to connect women from all walks of life, engaging them in conversation, collaboration, and support to help advance their individual, social, and professional pathways.
While Align provides a high-tech space for its members, it also encourages face-to-face interactions – noting that, while technology is growing exponentially, our connection with humans is not. Align marries the importance of tangible connection with the benefits of modern technology while encouraging its members to do the same.
Networking events at Align are a far cry from the typical crowded, corporate meet and greets. Align’s events encourage originality from participants, which help create meaningful connections that extend beyond the swapping of business cards. Events are varied – encompassing everything from discussion panels to fashion shows. Sign up to join this group of powerful, intelligent women using their new member interest form.
