Event description

Description

Join WICT NY for a conversation about purpose driven leadership with co-founders of She’s The First: Tammy Tibbetts, CEO and Christen Brandt, CPO

She's The First is a non-profit that fights gender inequality through education and is building a movement of activists, student leaders, and girls who will be the first in their families to graduate from high school.

At age 23, Tammy had an idea for a social media-driven campaign that would inspire Millennials to fundraise for girls’ education in low-income countries. She shared her idea for She’s the First with a Facebook friend, Christen Brandt. On November 1, 2009, they launched it in the form of a YouTube video. That one video became a movement that now reaches millions and has changed life outcomes for more than 800 STF Scholars in 11 countries.

Christen is a feminist and women’s rights advocate who knows that quality education is the key to a more equal world. She was a student and scholarship recipient at Syracuse University when starting She’s the First, and she now oversees the programs side of STF. When she’s not jet-setting to visit our local partners, you can often find her teaching a self-defense class or speaking on the importance of education and empowerment.

***** All proceeds from this event will be donated to She's The First to sponsor a student. *****
