What is a VERVE Think Tank?
Our VERVE Think Tanks (VTT) create forums and occasions to facilitate safe and comfortable moderated discussions on gender equality themes. We share what inspires us, what we are passionate about, what enrages us and what we want/can and will do about it.
VERVE Think Tank in your Community
Our first VTT in 2017 was with 9 badass feminists in the kitchen of our founder and CEO’s house. Now it’s 2019 and women all over the world have hosted VTT’s in their communities from Tucson, Arizona to Touluse, France to Auckland New Zealand with 500 attendees to date.
Each VTT starts with an introduction to a theme, issue and/or cause followed by a meaningful conversation and then wrapping it all up with an easy and doable “call to action” on how to walk our talk and turn our words into action.
Want to host your own VTT in your community?
We’d love to hear from you!

Here is an excerpt from our VERVE Think Tank name change press release.
We are happy to announce that in our commitment to intersectionality, we’re taking the cocktail out of the name. Going forward our Think Tanks will be rebranded as VERVE Think Tanks (VTT). However, Vegan pizza and Cava will remain on the menu….
