A goal moving forward for us here at The Fold is a better connected community of women — we've been sharing bold and beautiful words for close to two years now, and next up is a way to bridge what you read here with in-person events and experiences. 

In the effort of transparency and to build a better digital destination, we are sharing what we learned a few weeks ago about you, our readers. We asked for feedback in the form of a quick-and-easy survey (which you can still partake!) and were admittedly a little surprised by what we discovered. 

Before you dig into the results, we have one additional request: Tell us, is this an accurate representation of you? Is this what you want from The Fold? Our hope in publishing these results with you is to garner a deeper conversation, because we do want to know who you are and what you want from this space. If the below is not representative of you and your thoughts about our site, please help us by commenting below, on Instagram, or via email what you'd like to read, attend and experience!
