Wednesday Work Hour

Accountability is one of the most effective ways of achieving your goals. Spend 60 minutes with other Luminaries who are showing up for you and themselves - make a commitment of what you want to accomplish in this *virtual* co-working space, and then review and celebrate your progress at the end! This session is led by Luminary's Programming and Member Lead, Kelsey Gonsalves and Director of Events and Program Strategy, CeCe Everett, who are unequivocally equipped to shape this time together as a highlight of your week. Check in with one another at the top of the hour and let us know the project or task you intend to work on or complete. Then commit to said project or task, uninterrupted and as the hour comes to a close we will all revisit and check in one last time. It's the group accountability hour you know you need.  See you on Wednesday!

Amplifying Asian Voices - An Evening of Conversation & Comedy

How can you support AAPI women-owned businesses? Join for this evening of comedy and conversation with the Luminary Community in honor of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month! With drinks sponsored by Moment and Lunar and some amazing speakers, we hope to have you join us! Meet the Founders: Lin Chen - CEO and Co-Founder of Pink Moon: Lin Chen is the CEO + co-founder of Pink Moon. She is a second generation Asian American and was raised in Southern California, schooled in Texas and Taiwan, and is now a social entrepreneur in NYC. As a marketing communications professional with an emphasis on consumer lifestyle and beauty industries, she has worked for companies in various industries, ranging from startup to international public companies and B2B tech to beauty. Sustainable beauty has been a core component of her professional life for a decade. Her experience and passion for holistic living ultimately led her to create Pink Moon, a NYC based consultancy that aims to uplift and radically transform the beauty industry. After working alongside over 20 female-led sustainable beauty brands at various stages of growth, Lin transformed Pink Moon into a digital wellcare + community space and purpose-driven self-care brand in mid-2020. Alyce Chan - Writer, Producer and Stand Up Comedian: Alyce Chan is a writer, producer and stand up comedian who performs all over North America. She has performed at the New York Film Festival at Caroline's and is regularly seen on the some of the biggest parenting platforms, Scary Mommy and Today Parents. Alyce founded MOMCOM NYC, which Vogue featured as one of the top six funniest parent accounts on Instagram. Alyce uses her wit and honest perspectives on parenthood to empower mothers and women while sipping cold coffee.  Jennifer Tsay - Actor and Founder of Shoott: Jennifer Tsay is the proud Taiwanese-American startup co-founder and CEO of Shoott as well as an actor and voiceover artist. With a diverse background in investment banking, strategic finance, documentary film producing, and acting, Jennifer combines her passion for all-things-process with her love of art and storytelling to manage growth, strategy, and operations for Shoott alongside her amazing team. Shoott now offers its unique free-to-book mini photo sessions in 60 cities across the U.S. and has rapidly grown to $7.7MM of revenue in just 3 short years. For her work on Shoott, she has been awarded the honor of being on Forbes’ Next 1000 list of entrepreneurial superstars in fall of 2021. Her favorite question for managing strategy is simply "what can we do better?" and going from there. Her favorite skills for managing projects and teams are the ability to cultivate trust and the ability to be critical without being judgmental. She learned a lot about how to both give and receive notes from being an actor and she’s really passionate about helping people grow and develop both as professionals and human beings (they're often deeply related!). As an actor, Jennifer is a former member of The Bats at the Flea Theater and has appeared in The Other Two, Blue Bloods, The Blacklist, High Fidelity, JLo’s Marry Me, and Deborah Kampmeier’s Split, as well as in numerous voiceover spots for Citi, Samsung, Geico, and more. Jennifer received her B.A. from UPENN and resides in the NJ/NYC area with her husband, 3 rescue pups, and rescue FIV/FELV cat. Alice Kim - Founder and CEO of PerfectDD: Alice Kim is the Founder and CEO of  PerfectDD, a brand created from her own  need to find clothes that fit and flatter women with DD+ cup, small to mid-frame. As a size 32DD, Alice struggled her entire life to feel confident in clothes that are not too tight at her chest or oversized on the rest of her body. Learning that the average bra size in the U.S. is a 34DD and millions of women struggle with the same problem, Alice was inspired to create style solutions, and to be the voice for these underserved women. Alice believes that getting dressed should be easy so you can focus on being a boss. Born and raised in NYC, Alice is a graduate of  Dartmouth College with a degree in economics and began her career working in finance at Bear Stearns. After three years in finance, she decided to follow her true calling and began working in fashion. Alice spent two decades working at renown fashion houses including Shopbop, Diane von Furstenberg, Prada and Victoria’s Secret which taught her to be an expert in product, fit and design. Alice is also a member of the Female Founder Collective and Dreamers & Doers.

Mom Moments

We may all be #InThisTogether but as parents we know that may mean (and look) very different depending on the day, child and amount of sleep.

Join Luminary's COO and General Counsel, Erica Lerner, as she hosts this new monthly virtual session dedicated to parents coming together, sharing stories and giving ourselves an hour of time to just let it out - whatever that looks like. You'll have to bring your own coffee, but we'll provide the community space. See you there!

Using Your Privilege to Make Real Change with Dear White Women

If you've ever asked or been asked "What can I do to help combat racism?" then Dear White Women is here for you. Dear White Women is an award-winning weekly podcast - going since April 2019 - that is dedicated to helping White women use their privilege to uproot systemic racism. But not by making you feel defensive. Co-hosts Sara & Misasha are biracial (Japanese & White) best friends who met while walking out of a racial identity conversation as undergrads at Harvard a couple of decades ago. Misasha (the lawyer) brings perspective on history & current events, along with her family’s Black experience, and Sara (the life coach) brings positive psychology and humanity to the table, along with her White-presenting family’s experiences. They’re smart, real, funny, and ready to make change so join in as they help tackle the question, "WHAT CAN I DO TO HELP?" in a way that doesn't place the responsibility of education on peers, friends, colleagues, and even strangers of color rather than yourself. Learn more about Sara, Misasha and Dear White Women here: https://www.dearwhitewomen.com/

Undiversified: The Big Gender Short in Investment Management, explores the barriers that subtly but effectively discourage women from entering and staying in male-dominated industries at each point in the pipeline. At the entry level, the lack of visible role models discourages students from considering the field, and those who do embark on a career face obstacles to retention and promotion.
