How It Started
It all started on a road trip. While discussing how much we owe the suffragette movement (as one does on a four-hour car ride), Lindsey went down a digital rabbit hole. It was then we discovered our namesake anti-suffragette poster and decided to reclaim the slander. Seeing these historical trailblazers, many of whom remain uncelebrated, sparked our thinking. It’s all too easy to become complacent, resting on the strides they made for us, but we owe those women more. How could we light the flame for torchbearers of today while paying homage to the women who came before us? How could we bring womxn together to learn, grow and keep the flame burning? We looked around, and we didn’t find our fit, so like the Wild Rosies, we decided to create our own space. The Wild Rose Collective was born of the goal to celebrate, honor and encourage womxn of today through the stories of our foremothers.
Back To School
SEPTEMBER 8, 2019 | BEAUTY SHOPPE - ASCENDER LOCATION
The Wild Rose Collective is going back to school (adult style), and we want you to be part of it! Let’s face it, it’s been a minute since we’ve been in high school, and a lot of those subjects would serve us well in our entrepreneurial journeys, as well as self improvement. We’ll be brushing up on Civics, Sex-Ed, English, Public Speaking, and maybe even passing a note in study hall.
OCTOBER 12, 2019 | at ENERGY INNOVATION CENTER
Wellness Disruptors is a one-day conference and health fair with the goal of diversifying the face of wellness, elevating outliers in the wellness community, creating a space where wellness is accessible and universal, and exploring the impacts of wellness on the health of the planet. We’ll bridge together leaders from various sectors, ages, and walks of life, in order to learn and build a more diverse wellness community in Pittsburgh and beyond.
