What is Rock What You Got?
Formerly the Twin Cities Women’s Expo. Yes! it’s still here, but it’s got a new name – Rock What You Got – and we’ve reimagined it for the women of today. Our mission is to elevate Minnesota’s most essential female voices in music, business, theater, and community. We are a social enterprise dedicated to promoting gender equality, halting stereotypes, and providing a community hub to showcase the work of those who are doing the real hard work to turn action into results.
We live these values by creating events and curating experiences that celebrate, educate, connect and inspire! Rock What You Got is an anthem call for everyone to embrace their uniqueness and encourage others to do the same – without apology and without guilt.
Coming up next:
