3-Day Itinerary

Day 1 | Sunday: Arrival and Welcome


  • Join us for a relaxing afternoon in Madison’s small town neighbor, Paoli, where we’ll visit women-owned businesses, hang out by the river, and enjoy treats from the brewery and/or dairy. Trek out to Paoli by noon for a full afternoon of visiting before heading into Madison and checking into the hotel before dinner.


  • Enjoy a delightful meal at Ahan while chatting with your cohort and getting to know new She Shines members, too. Chef and co-owner Jamie Brown-Soukaseume was honored as a James Beard emerging chef for 2023.

Day 2 | Monday: Exploration and Growth


  • Breakfast from Marigold Kitchen at the Goodman Community Center
  • Resource Roundtable Workshop where you can lean on and learn from fellow She Shines members and local Madison subject-matter experts to discuss current issues facing your business. So far, we’ve confirmed women who work or own businesses related to business banking and marketing with more to come.


  • Explore local dining options for lunch on your own. We’ll give you a list of options near the hotel and next meeting spot, the Wisconsin State Capitol. We’ll also connect attendees interested in getting lunch together.
  • Head to the Wisconsin State Capitol to meet with Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Dallet.
  • Spend your afternoon as you like. Pick from three optional activities with varying additional fees: (a) guided nature tour of the Arboretum ($10); (b) private yoga class taught by Keena Atkinson, owner of R’oujie Wellness ($30); or (c) Scenting Party at The Soap Opera, owned by Stacey Scannell ($30). To reserve your spot, add the optional activity ticket to your cart in addition to your retreat fee. If you’d rather stay back and work on work, feel free to do so.


  • We’ll head out for a private dinner where we can catch up on our afternoon excursions and enjoy each other’s company.

  • Closing: Share experiences and key takeaways
