Frequently Asked Questions
How often do you meet?
We meet once a month for ModSocials, informal meetings intending to encourage conversation and offer growth through education. You can find more info about our events on Eventbrite.
Where do you meet?
We always have our monthly ModSocials at Refinery Nashville, an awesome small business resource space in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood. We especially love Refinery Nashville because they are making an active push for more women members.
What is the agenda for a typical ModSocial?
We recommend arriving promptly at 6:00pm for ModSocials (if it’s impossible to arrive at 6:00pm, don’t sweat–just join in on whatever part of the evening we’re involved in). Each event begins with approximately 15 minutes of open conversation. We then circle up with the full group for introductions. After that, we alter each month between discussing, in small groups, a given topic or featuring a speaker who introduces a workshop. After that, we return to the big group to wrap up and share announcements. Then, we close with more open conversation.
What does Mod Stand for?
Mod stands for Modernist, Modification and Modulation. We have Modern beliefs about equality. We strive to Modify the existing working environments for most Nashville women. And Mod (and confidence building that result from it) is the undercurrent of our lives, is a Modulation.
Is Mod only for women?
Nope! Our goal is to provide a welcoming, supportive, inspiring environment for women, those who identify as women and those who do not identify with the gender binary. We do not exclude anyone (including men) from our events, we simply focus primarily on supporting women as our means towards creating equality.
How can I get involved?
Mod is run in a very casual manner through updates via our Facebook page. If you're passionate about Mod and would like to lend your services in whatever capacity, please feel free to reach out via our Facebook page and inquire how you can help volunteer and/or be a speaker at one of our ModSocials!
