we take the guesswork out of networking
We Are Redefining Networking
At Six Degrees Society, we are authentically ourselves. We’re a group of strong, independent, and fierce women who are reinventing what it means to network. A lot of the time, we all wonder “what’s the point of networking?” It’s often only associated with work and doesn’t focus on the building of relationships and real connections. More importantly, how often does it revolve around women? Our mission is to provide an integrative approach to networking — focused on women and their personal, professional, and lifestyle development. We know how tricky it all can be, so it’s our goal to be your social network IRL. We make connecting easier and more authentic. Instead of exchanging business cards, we want to exchange phone numbers and stories! We host a diversified series of monthly programming for women professionals of all ages and stages of life. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re established, switching careers or in the middle of a move — we are here for you! Experience fireside chats, moderated panels, and intimate workshops all across the country to educate and empower yourself.
Emily Merrell | Founder
I'm Chief Networker and Founder of Six Degrees Society. People also (lovingly) refer to me as "20 questions" because I've always loved figuring out people's stories.
While working in the fashion industry, I dreamt up a place where individuals could come together from all industries, all backgrounds and show up who they are -- unapologetically. Nothing makes me happier connecting people who could mutually make each other's lives more enjoyable.
In addition to Six Degrees Society, I also work with companies, founders, and solopreneurs who are looking to build a strong community of their own, plan events that inspire and develop partnerships that move the needle.
