What started as a lunch date between two longtime friends turned into something much more. After a summer brainstorming session in 2017, Taryn Herritt and Angela Osborne recognized some gaps that existed for women entrepreneurs within the business networking world. Together, the pair dared to change that. Herritt and Osborne joined forces that year to create The Atelier Collective, an inaugural conference dedicated to celebrating women and inspiring them into action. With their combined experience in event planning, marketing, and business operations, Herritt and Osborne have successfully driven forth real change for women business owners everywhere. Since their first sold-out conference in 2018, they’ve now grown their meetings to host over 1,400 women.
