For some people, standing up and sharing a personal story feels risky — luckily for the record crowd (almost 120 of you!) at our most recent TueNight event, this was not the case, as 5 women stood up and shared stories of risks taken in their own lives. And we got to hear the good, the bad, the embarrassing, and the lovely.
Margit welcomed the crowd to the event, held at the women’s career development and collaboration hub, Luminary. Here she is with Robin Gelfenbein, one of the night’s readers, who offered up a super-special second, bonus story at the end of the night (in which weiners featured prominently — we mean hot dogs!).
The event’s speakers shared stories of their own personal risks, involving family (of course), career, identity, taking on new challenges, and sexxxxxxy time… gone wrong. Read those stories here, here, and here, or watch the videos of their performances on our Facebook page.
There was fun, laughter, snacks, wine, Hint Water (thanks for sponsoring!), new connections made, quite a few hugs, and lots of wisecracks.
At “halftime,” we asked the crowd to share their own greatest or most daring risks — under cover of anonymity — and then asked audience members to read them out loud.
Here are more photos from the night. To scope out the full album, head on over to the gallery on our Facebook page.
See you at our next event!
