*Invite local professionals to serve as guest instructors where possible.
*Allocate half of class time to discussion and hands-on activities.
*Provide un-biased, researched based information.
*Create a learning environment where mentoring is spontaneous.

Core Values:

*Safe Harbor - all questions or situations are welcomed for sharing and open discussion.
*Connection - to each other and to professionals introduced to them in class.
*Discovery - the moment when something makes sense where before it did not.
*Guided Intelligence - at any one time there is a woman in the audience who knows more about the subject being presented than the instructor and is willing to share her experience.
