“We cannot change what we are not aware of
and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.”

Sheryl Sandberg
COO, Facebook and Founder, LEAN

We have achieved great things
in such a short time.

By working solely with volunteers and relying on the generosity of corporate partners and event hosts, we have attracted >1000 members and recurrent attendees. And we want to do more. We want to reach more men and women and have greater impact. We want to drive towards better gender balance and equality. With corporate sponsorship, we will have the freedom to hire more support, run more frequent events, and develop products and services that will help us achieve our vision.
