Women Lifting Women

Learn from trailblazing leaders in tech, advertising and gaming about how mentorship can help lift the next generation of women.

Women don't play

when it comes to leveling the field

We started this effort in honor of International Womens Day but recognized ​that championing women can't be limited to one month a year. The goal of ​this project is to provide a platform for women to share their experiences, ​share resources and guidance for everyone in the ecosystem on how to ​create more equitable workplaces and help empower the next generation of ​female leaders.
