Each month, Sue is joined by a diverse, all-female cast of talented actor/storytellers, singer/songwriters, spoken word artists and empowering special guests for “the conversation.” Past special guests have included Civil Rights leaders, Transgender trailblazers, Women’s Rights activists, Award-winning Authors, veteran Journalists and many more!

An Evening of Powerful Stories & Passionate Conversation + Dinner & Drinks!

Read the feature on Sue Scott’s “Island of Discarded Women” at the Star Tribune.


"...I left that show charged to embrace my own challenges like those islander performers did! To advocate for greater sisterhood and promote change as a collective voice ...To survive those waves that knock us down and to do better then tread in the waters of tolerance. To make effective big splashes in our world,!"
