Two local CEOs who recently started The Nook Online: A Basecamp for Women on the Rise will discuss the importance of empowering women and the effect that has on the community and economy this week at the Ketchum Innovation Center.

Their talk will be followed by a highly requested web design class put on by website guru Taylor Sundali on Thursday.

  • Australia-born Noa Rie, who founded Vie Active, and Kim Havens, a real estate developer in San Francisco for 18 years, will hold an informal fireside chat from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, at the Ketchum Innovation Center, 180 W. 6th St.

The two coincidentally both left the big cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco in 2016 to move to Sun Valley with their families. Both have two daughters. And both believe that travel and adventures in the outdoors have the ability to ignite women’s confidence and capabilities.

Havens, for instance, has completed a month-long National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) program in the Wind River Range in Wyoming, has studied in Scotland and Tanzania and completed a nine-month trip around the world that included the Annapurna circuit in Nepal and climbing Mount Meru in Tanzania.

The Nook Online is a membership-based alliance for women to connect and drive each other forward as they explore what makes for a meaningful life. It offers meaningful conversations with like-minded women in a safe place to receive tools and resources from community experts. It also offers immersive events outdoors, such as July’s Purpose and Power Summit, which offered a chance for women to interact with social impact innovators and others in order to make more mindful decisions, clarify their values and understand their “why.”

Its online app delivers courses, contents and connections.

While free, attendees are asked to RSVP via Eventbrite or Facebook at KetchumInnovationCenter.

  • Taylor Sundali will teach the basics of web design, including the types of platforms and tools that are available from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, at KIC.

Sundali says that building your own website without help or direction can result in hours of misguided work, ending in an unsatisfactory product.
