Alley Girls Voices Forum is a celebration of the modern women’s movement. Our mothers and grandmothers marched in the streets to rally for women's rights. Today’s generation is also protesting the status quo, but in a different way. Having recognized the progress fought for by the women before them, today’s women are advancing the movement by doing, creating, thinking and speaking their way into business and leadership roles previously reserved for men. The tech industry has proved to be an accessible avenue for women to populate those roles, but there’s still a long road ahead before women break through a system that, by default, caters to men.
We want to use Alley Girls Voices Forum as a platform for educating women about their opportunities to go outside the box as leaders, and to provide them with the tools, people and resources to be change agents themselves.
We hope you'll join us!
This is a small event, and space is limited, so RSVP now!
