No matter where you are on your faith journey, Polished is a place for you. We are a safe community of young professional women who ask the hard questions about life and faith and work to find the answers together. At Polished, we welcome women of all faith backgrounds and intentionally design our events to best meet the needs of women exploring Christianity for the first time or the first time in a long time.
WE're YOUNG PROFESSIONAL WOMEN gathering to navigate career & EXPLORING FAITH TOGETHER.
So often we try to separate work and faith. After all, faith is for early-risers on Sunday mornings, and the rest of the week is meant for work and fun, right? We couldn’t disagree more. Back in 2008, we took a closer look at the up-and-coming young professional workforce. We saw that not only are they leaving empty spots in the pew, but they’re leaving their faith at home when they head to work. The young professional women of this generation are smarter and more forward-thinking than any generation before. But life is still hard, and we all face challenges that we can’t overcome alone. That’s why we launched Polished – to give women a place to find a community of women just like them. And while we’re there, we talk about how faith isn’t just for a dusty corner of an old bookshelf; it’s relevant to situations we face every day in real life. We changed our name from Polish to Polished in 2016, but we are the same organization. You can read about our founders here.
