An invitation only, curated gathering of truly
The Wonder Women dinner series started as many glass ceiling breaking women were alone as they advanced. So we gathered women from many paths together to make it interesting and expand their relationships beyond just work. In the last 15 years the women have helped others advance, founded companies together, raised capital. The folks who come to dinner vary - included founders, venture capitalists, heads of innovation, top executives at Fortune 100 companies, all industries, very diverse. The dinner is no more than 20 women, intimate, and fun. The goal is not to swap cards, but to laugh.
After 15 years of trial and error.
The secret: diversity + surprise.
So we do not share who's coming in advance, only after. Trust us that it will be good people. We have not been wrong yet. This helps in your ability to build authentic relationships with someone for who they are not just a title.
We have organically spread to many cities and thousands of women grounded in genuine friendship and support for each other's success.

You are invited to join the group after experiencing at least one dinner. Each city gets together to “Get Shit Done” — the power of women accomplishing a collective goal each year to drive purpose. Additionally, all the women share opportunities across cities to help break through barriers and rise.

Yao Huang is on a mission to connect the most interesting women in the world. She is doing it, one dinner at a time. Tonight in NYC, women of every background and experience traded stories, discovered “small world” connections, and reveled in what makes us unique. A wonder, indeed, and a wonderful way to build community when we crave it most. Thank you for having me.
Last night was amazing! Absolutely loved the format and location! Thank you for hosting such a unique gathering of truly wonder women. It was fantastic to meet such a diverse group of powerhouse ladies uniting around similar issues and new friendship. I left last night with a buzz of energy excited about all the new connections and ideas that emerged from the evening.

“Thank you so much for including me in your wonderful dinner last week. It was a truly inspiring evening with some incredible women. What you have built is so amazing! Thank you thank you! ”

“THANK YOU for curating this group of women that I got to spend an amazing evening with. I think sometimes it’s easy to tell ourselves that we’re fine, we’re understood, we have our tribe - and to fake it till we make it in our daily lives. Being with these women at this dinner however made me feel truly understood from both a professional/corporate perspective and a entrepreneurial/boss lady perspective. I don’t think I’ve ever been so interested in getting to know every person I was in the room with.”
