This past August 27th, 2019, we hosted our first panel and networking event: Not Your Average Girl Boss at Front Street Cafe in Fishtown. At the very beginning stages of creating Social Solstice this past year, we wanted to facilitate a truly modern and unique panel discussion that exemplified our philosophy. We believe that your highest and lowest points lead to growth and success, and we wanted to start a dialogue about how this translates in business with our local community.

Speaking: Nioka Wyatt, Linda Schellenger, and Kelly Stillwell.

Speaking: Nioka Wyatt, Linda Schellenger, and Kelly Stillwell.

We rounded up three of Philadelphia's most tenacious and enduring women, Linda Schellenger, Nioka Wyatt & Kelly Stillwell, who through the highs and lows of their careers have shattered ceilings and broken barriers. The outcome was over 70+ other bosses, creatives, and entrepreneurs across all different industries engaging in a night of fun, inspiration, and growth.

Best of Philly winners Philly Design Collective designed and installed a gorgeous bohemian photo set with peacock chairs, beautiful textiles, rugs and pillows that enhanced Front Street’s already funky decor. The Instagram worthy photo area was complete with custom floral decor from Stems by Meredith, and lighting and photos by our partners Philly Reps who snapped everyone’s good angles.
