Bringing Women Together.
The WeDames slogan says it all, these babes Jana Moreno and Celine Roberts are the new face of Sisterhood in the Springfield Area.
Does it get any more #LadyBoss than that?!
These polka dot dresses and pearls make us want to start a campaign for Jana and Celine to run for office. Lady Boss Presidential Power Team!!
Celine and Jana have been besties since forever.
Jana spent the last twelve years in Malaysia, and they stayed close the entire time. When she moved back here this year, it’s like they never missed a single beat.
While their roles have changed drastically in twelve years (hello, motherhood!), their dynamic has that I-love-you-forever-even-when-you’re-a-psychopath feel, and that’s a feeling we relate to.
You’ll recognize Celine as the face of Patton Alley Pub.
This woman is a powerhouse and is responsible for marketing and events, promotion and coordination, and public relations. She does it all. She’s even been known to jump behind the bar and sling a mean drink when the time calls for it.
Celine rocks the hell out of a vintage dress, her eye for fashion and love of thrifting is on point. She inspires us with her dedication to reaching women and connecting them to one another, helping them find resources they need to accomplish great things, and supporting them with empathy and kindness.
We’ve also seen this wonder woman absolutely slay on stage because of course she’s got great pipes and is basically a super hero. We’ve got a huge crush on her.
Jana is the babeliest of business partners.
As Business Development Manager for WeDames, Jana is absolutely slaying at creating and cultivating a network of strong women to support one another through workshops, blogs, ladies nights out, and other events for women, by women.
Jana’s other roles include being a mama bear to her beautiful little girl, a Certified Systemic Constellation Practitioner, a director in the WeWorld Global Summit, and Founder of Wisdom-Ink Online Magazine.
Her writing style is smart and witty and we’ve definitely reaped the benefits of her insider knowledge on everything from Springfield Happy Hours to finding the best deals when you’re shopping online. Thanks to Jana we’re now getting sweet discounts using the Honey browser extension.
The next event this dynamic duo have in store for Springfield is their Ladies Night Out: Summer Nights event at Gilardi’s Ristorante on September 7th from 6-9pm. The event is $25 and 100% of the proceeds go toward paying for the yummy appetizers and classy cocktails you’ll be sharing with like-minded, local women. The event is to meet women in your community and make connections with people you’ll be inspired by! Maybe you’ll find the perfect people to work with future projects on! We’re definitely going to be there!
If you’re not able to make it to the Ladies Night Out event this time around, don’t worry!
WeDames organizes a Ladies Night Out event every month! You’ll have plenty more chances to get dressed up and hang out with some of the coolest women in Springfield.
Ladies Night Out happens the first Wednesday of every month and there’s always a theme. We love a theme. If you want to make sure you don’t miss a single solitary one of them, head over HERE and get caught up on how to stay in the loop. These women are so approachable and helpful. We guarantee they want to help you connect with other amazing women, so don’t be shy!
My mission in WeDames is to present women with an experience unlike any they’ve had before. By cultivating an environment of collaboration and comfort, meant for women, by women, WeDames has something to offer to any woman in Springfield and the greater Springfield area. – Celine
For me, the whole point of creating WeDames was to create a safe space for women to connect personally and/or professionally. WeDames is actually a social nonprofit. While there are two parts to it, the women’s events and the online magazine, we try to make everything free for our community. Additionally, we support local businesses which is why our magazine is geographically specific to Springfield and surrounding areas.Women are the biggest influencers in our economy as well – even in male dominated industries – and while we are the biggest influencers we are also the LEAST understood by marketers. By creating a space by women for women where we feel understood, we promote individual joy and contentment. This in turn has a direct impact on women’s families and the Springfield economy as a whole. – Jana
