This month’s empowerMIX delivers overdue doses of doting to the many and diverse women of the City Different who distinguish Santa Fe with entrepreneurial, activist and visionary leadership and innovation, sponsored by the Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce.
Come and lounge with us at the posh and popular Lacuna Galleries on Palace Avenue–operated by international cross-sector entrepreneur Sheryle Moon–and experience a bevy of badass offerings from women-owned businesses and fabulous female talent.
Nosh on mini-Bahn Mi Vietnamese Sandwiches from Soma Frank’s and Fiona Wong’s Sweetwater Harvest Kitchen and dine on delectables from Elizabeth Koch’s Zia Diner. Then let Chaine Pena and Misha Hesse blow your mind with masticatable magic from Ma Chérie Bakery.
DJ Vanessa Wilde will cease control of the Candyman Strings and Things sound system and teach you how to find your feminine center of gravity groove.
Experience awesome antics orchestrated by One Billion Rising, Planned Parenthood and Goler.
Flush out your feelings on our survey and you’ll get your first drink comped courtesy of Slazer Technologies.
And help MIX take back the sash with a new millennium twist on a suffragate classic. We’re done with sashes being relegated to beauty pageants and we’re going to be helping you dole out custom sashes to declare what women represent in our community, which women represent the ideals you adore and who is leading women (and the rest of us) into the future. Come ready to write, ready to wear and willing to rock.
Finally, we’ll unveil our 2015 bizMIX business plan finalists who are about to face off as Santa Fe startups looking forward to the future.
