Networking or big events can sometimes make us uneasy... make us feel awkward at first. Sometimes it’s out of our comfort zones to have small talk with strangers.
That’s one of the many reasons we started @MyDeansList Meetups. To have an inclusive, come-as-you-are, collection of trailblazers/young professionals to collaborate in a cool, comfortable setting. No more stuffy business professional attire. But extra points if you wear light blue and white!
It's not about what you do, but who you are.
EVOLUTION OF MEETUPS:
2019 - Our first Meetup was all about “Making the First Move” with @BumbleBizz, “Getting Out Of Your Comfort Zone” with @Traveling_Gypsy, and “Tackling Fear” with champion NASCAR driver @JuliaLandauer.
2019 - Dean's List Atlanta (run by Kendall Trammell) created their first meetup at Dancing Dogs Yoga capturing a day of learning, community, yoga, and thoughtful conversation.
2020 - *Any in-person events were paused during COVID-19 pandemic
2022- We brought back the premier monthly networking event for young professionals to the Queen City at Summit Seltzer!
These are no ordinary networking events. We are showing how our community believes in collaboration over competition, empowering everyone, and values a sense of belonging.
EMPOWERING EVERYONE: The Dean's List is a Charlotte-based digital branding and career consulting agency focused on building a strong community of empowered individuals. Our founder, Meredith Dean, created the company with a mission to uplift our clients, regardless of race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or background. This mission helped the company grow from digital services to in-person and virtual events that created open forums for everyone to connect authentically in a safe space as well as to recognize young professionals who shape the world and give us hope for the future. Learn more about us from our community of 10,000+ professionals at our events: Meetups, Dinners, TGIM Panels & IG Lives, EmpowerCon & our 20 Under 20 Awards. And of course, all of our guests stay on brand with a dress code of their unique style, but in our colors, blue and white!
