Quick FAQ

Why do I need to apply? Why can't you just let people attend on a first come first serve basis?

We have a limited number of spaces, and people across the world are interested in attending.  We want to curate an intimate and well-balanced group of individuals who can come out and not only represent their communities but also have the capacity to return to those communities and inspire positive change and growth.

How do you evaluate applications & select those who will attend?

Every application is read by our panel of organizers, with an interest in putting together a diverse and accomplished group of individuals.  We will take into consideration everything from your role in your community to your education background and areas of research.

What if I can't attend the whole weekend?

While we understand everyone has busy schedules, the Retreat is a unique opportunity to take a break from the 'work' of your work, learn new skills, meet other influencers, and engage in difficult conversations. We want to give spaces to people who will show up and make the most of this experience, and will favor applications of those who can.

We will prioritize individuals who can commit to the full weekend over those who can not.
