Bossladies Magazine - Issue 05

Bossladies Magazine is an biannual print publication, illustrating the growing, global community of creative women entrepreneurs.  Each issue of Bossladies Magazine is centered upon one city and features the stories of a diverse group of women from that city whom we admire.  As such, Bossladies offers both the inspiration to create and grow meaningful, ethical, and sustainable businesses, and the practical knowledge required to make the endeavor a success.

Since 2016, we have produced magazines in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, and we have grown a community of subscribers and stockists from across the globe.  In addition to creating the magazine, we also host Work Sesh, a beloved community-building event series for female entrepreneurs. 

New issues of Bossladies Magazine are released each May and November.
