Welcome to The Gather Community!
Who we are
Our culture and values
Opportunities to Connect
Before we were The Gather Community, Gather was a physical space in downtown Santa Cruz. I'm Tracie Root, creator of The Gather Community, and I was inspired to create a space to bring friends, associates, clients and family together to learn, grow, and experience new things. My mission was to bring people together, for the good of all.
Now...we've had some changes in our lives, and what I've realized about getting people together is this - we have got to build community where we can. In The Gather Community, we are thriving by shifting our focus from renting one room in one town, to supporting our members and the community at large online! It's been an exciting time of new beginnings and new ideas.
Even though we are all excited to (slowly) get together in person again, we will gratefully be continuing our robust community offerings by holding and promoting online events with members from all around the globe.

Originating in Santa Cruz, California, The Gather Community takes on the vibe of its origin by being both unique and for everyone at the same time. Everything we do is based on support, encouragement, and uplifting others. Our core values include:
We're all in this together. We create a warm, welcoming, and inclusive environment where we treat each other with respect.
We give more than we take, we share and are open-hearted.
We hold space for authentic, expressive discussions, and differing opinions are embraced and accepted with grace.
We add value, tips, and experiences to each other in order to learn, grow, and thrive.
We are better together!
Mutual respect is required for everyone to feel comfortable, seen, and accepted.
The Gather Community wants to support you!
We have paid members, our community Creators and Contributors, whom we support and promote, and who engage in our hosted events and other activities. We connect women to support, encourage, and uplift each other with networking / connection / fun events and with BOLD Action Sessions. We send out regular communications about our upcoming events as well as for personal and professional development tips, so you can focus on being and doing what's most beneficial to you and your life.
