The Southern C Summit: An Empowering Retreat for Women in Business
At Fig & Dove, we cherish being members of the Southern Coterie, a vibrant community for women in business. The Southern C was started as a virtual version of a traditional front porch – a laid-back gathering place to share, inspire, encourage, and nurture creative minds. Cheri and Whitney, the incredible women behind the concept, have fostered a sisterhood of female entrepreneurs. People often ask us about the Southern C and Summit, making this the perfect opportunity to share the heart of the group and how valuable it has been to growing Fig & Dove.
We recently attended the Southern C Summit at Sea Island. The three-day event is filled with refreshing programming to reinvigorate businesses, brands, and creative entrepreneurs and the community behind them. During the week, as one of this year's Summit sponsors, we also had the honor to create a gorgeous tablescape, share a meal and get inspired by our guests!
Throughout the event, we were empower by the speakers we heard, the connections we made, the friends we met, and the opportunities presented. While our TSC webinars are certainly valuable, there is nothing quite like connecting in person! Summit was also a refreshing opportunity to remind ourselves of TSC’s mission - to help female entrepreneurs #connectcollaboratecreate by providing opportunities to do all three!
Leaving Sea Island, we were overwhelmed with gratitude for the opportunity to collaborate with old and new friends from across the country, creating cherished memories and sharing actionable advice. There is no greater feeling than being surrounded by strong women with similar goals and desires to see the women around them succeed.
The Southern C membership has created opportunities and connections for our brand that we would have never made being located in a smaller city in the south. We love TSC’s balance of education, networking, brand discovery and socialization and are so grateful to be a part of such a fabulous organization!
