NorCal Chapter Holiday Celebration & Speaker!

Let’s get together to celebrate the holidays!  Join us for appetizers, wine and eggnog as we hear from an amazing local entrepreneur, Zahra Kassam.  She is the Founder & CEO of Monti Kids, a learning subscription box program for infants and toddlers offering Montessori toys as well as parent support & education. Zahra will talk about her journey, from being a trained Montessori teacher to starting a business, finding funding, and growing a company.

Next up, we'll get inspired with a fun WOW (Words of Wisdom) Session, where you can share your own words of inspiration or advice. This will be a casual open forum, so please come prepared to share your best career or personal advice, or an inspirational quote or quip.

And if you bring an unwrapped toy, we’ll be donating them all to either the local Toys for Tots or Oakland Children’s Hospital.

Don't miss our last event of the year. We’ll be raffling off a FREE one-year WIT membership – a value of $150 – for one lucky attendee!
