“SQUAD - I've been talking about this for awhile and it's finally time. Time to surf, time to learn, time to get our retreat ON.

I've been wanting to take a small group of leaders on an excursion to a new place, where we can bond, learn from one another and spend some quality time away from our everyday responsibilities and routines. I've always found that the deepest connections with yourself and other people come when you can be truly present and when you're outside of the daily patterns that often keep us on auto-pilot.”
- Leanne Pittsford, CEO & Founder, Lesbians Who Tech
