September mentor circles are all about Getting Clear. Summer is a hazy, sweaty blur and all of a sudden September hits—with its cool air and fall deadlines and back-to-reality aftertaste that no amount of La Croix can hide. Want to get focused and gain some clarity about the rest of your year? You’ll leave our circles with a fresh and clear state of mind, an army of women behind you and a list of action items.

• An intimate, guided session of conversation and connection with a group of women who we think will be a good match for you.
• An invaluable network of women to support you beyond this three and a half hour session.
• Breakfast and coffee by Happy Bones.
• Access to our private Facebook mentor group (also known as the OKREAL illuminati). Need a designer, intern, collaborator, friend, accountant or gyno recommendation? This is where you’ll find it. Future and past mentor circle participants also have access to this group, so your network of curated industry contacts will continue to expand—enabling your opportunity to grow right along with it. We also offer discounts for all events and special perks for members.
How to apply
- Read the Mentor Circle Guide.
- Submit your application here.
- If you are invited to join, you will receive an email from us. You must accept the invite and make payment within eight hours, or we will pass along to someone else.
- If it takes a while for you to receive an invite, this is a reflection of the amount of applications we receive (Not you! You are great!), and the fact we can only take a limited number of women at a time. Please be patient and know that it might take a while for us to place you in a group. There is no need to email us to follow up, we have your information.
“It’s tough to be a career-oriented individual——let alone a woman, let alone in New York. My OKREAL experience reinforced that support and empathy is all around us and that we have to propel our thoughts and channel our talents into action. In an open forum like a mentorship circle, suggestions come from others but the solution comes from within. This was a special, affirming, and encouraging environment. I’m so grateful to have been a participant.” ——DyAnna
“There’s something about the kind of woman who seeks out an OKREAL circle… they’re inspired, driven, and value the input and strength of women coming together. Coming in and getting unbiased opinions from strangers who are driven like you is something invaluable.” ——Ariel
