About Participating Organizations:

GenEquality - We use art, design, fashion, and technology to positively influence culture change - in peer groups, in workplaces, and in our wider society.


TechFest Club - Techfest Club is an event series for women in tech. With breakfast events to get your day started with a dose of inspiration and evening events to unwind after work, Techfest Club is a place for women in tech to network, discuss their ideas and questions, and hear from leaders from all corners of the tech industry.


Women's March Global - Women’s March Global was created to bring together a passionate, diverse global community of women and allies who seek to create a future of equality, justice, and compassion for all; who represent in spirit these principles and will work in a local, authentic way to implement them.

Equality NOW - Since 1992, our international network of lawyers, activists and supporters have held governments responsible for ending legal inequality, sex trafficking, sexual violence & harmful practices, such as female genital mutilation (FGM) & "child marriage"


Radical Health - Radical Health is a minority women-owned social enterprise. We work at the intersection of community health and tech. We combine meaningful conversations with AI enabled tech that helps people understand their health care rights during a visit, build trust, and develop self-advocacy.
