9/14 “Pinay So Fly” – Headshots + Clothing & Jewelry Swap


Photoshoot, Clothing & Jewelry Swap
Brought to you by Entrepinays Summit, Uppercloud & Bijoux Salon

Entrepinays Summit is proud to partner with UpperCloud Media & Bijoux Salon on our LAST monthly meetup before our big annual summit in October! This month we’ll be partnering with a gang of amazing photographers, stylists, makeup artists, and pinays on a multi-faceted event designed to help you look and feel your best!


– Headshot Photography by featured photographers @themogli, and more. Each pinay will come away with 3 amazing new professional headshots for your personal use! Space is limited.
– Hair Styling by Marian Ha of Bijoux Salon SF
– Makeup by Ann Dela Cruz, and more!


All are welcome to participate! Bring any clothes or jewelry that you no longer want, and trade them in – one pinay’s basura is another’s treasure 😉 For every piece of clothing/jewelry piece you bring, you’ll receive 1 ticket that you can exchange for another piece of clothing/jewelry. **What kind of clothes to bring?** Think stuff you’d try to sell at Buffalo Exchange, not the kind you’d donate to Goodwill.


Any and all PINXYS are welcome including trans women and non-binary people. You DON’T have to be an Entrepinay to attend and participate in the clothing & jewelry swap! Priority for headshots will be given to Entrepinays who currently run their own business.


40 people for headshots / 100 people for the general event


$5 General Admission
$50 for those doing headshots

San Francisco 6/19 Event: Pinayism in Tech


Entrepinays Summit is excited to partner with General Assembly to host this amazing panel that will explore how we can find our voices as Pinays in spaces that power the Internet.

We are going to be joined by 4 prolific personalities who are based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their panel discussion will bring up topics such as Pinayism, identity, expectations, imposter syndrome, competition in the tech space, and how we can use tech to create support systems and foster self care.

The concept of Pinayism is defined by Dr. Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales as “the complexity of the intersections where race/ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, spirituality/religion, educational status, age, and place of birth” and its relation to our individual and collective lived experiences. This program will explore the many layers of a Pinay and the many topics that affect them.

Speakers are subject to change without notice.

This event is open to all genders and backgrounds — anyone who supports the careers of women and those identifying as women in business and tech are welcome to attend.

General Assembly SF recognizes the need for safe spaces for women and people with marginalized gender identities to discuss or challenge viewpoints, to ask questions without judgement and to share experiences with a like-minded community. We ask that you keep an open mind to create a supportive safe space that fosters conversation and exchange of opinions, ideas and questions.
