About Fashion Meets Poetry


Their mission is to create an empowering space for women to embrace the journey of life and the beauty of oneself through storytelling, knowledge and sisterhood. The goal is to provide every day women a platform to be witnessed and heard by sharing stories of struggle and strength and celebrating their beauty.


“Our internal personal struggles and past often hold us back from living empowered lives. Building a deeper connection with our stories, owning our truth and being witnessed has the power to change our lives.”

Lisa Harris, Fashion Meets Poetry

What happens at Popup Think Tank?


Step 1: Interview the Founder!

We'll take a few minutes to interview Lisa Harris, founder of Fashion Meets Poetry. The goal here is to get on the same page, learning about the mission, vision, challenges, and opportunities.  

Step 2: Contribute Your Ideas, Wisdom, and Connections

Our facilitator, Ann, will help us unearth the good ideas that are inside of each of us. Whether you are someone with years of business strategy experience, or you simply believe in the power of new initiatives, all are welcome to participate. Many are surprised how many ideas they have to offer once we get started!

Step 3: Celebrate the Mission!

After the event we'll put the ideas in an Idea Book for Lisa to serve their team in the long and short term. However (!), as much as this event is about generating new ideas, it's also about celebrating those who are making a difference. That includes Lisa, Ann, and you. Register today to see this process in action - and join in the creation of something our world needs.
