These women are founders, venture capitalists, engineers, executives and more, who represent our community. They are the women who exemplify profound leadership skills, hard-work, humility, and success and demonstrate their strength with devotion to the work they do everyday. They encourage and inspire us all!
Our May events
One purpose of our May events is to tell the stories of the journey, the grind, and the setbacks of great female leaders. It is important that we recognise, listen to and encourage these women as we work toward building a more inclusive ecosystem.
Anyone and everyone who believes in our mission to work toward change -- men and women alike -- should come out to our event in May!!!
