The Reason Why

The challenge

A gap remains at all levels of a women's career journey, from entering high-earning fields like technology, to equal pay and earning promotions. Women still earn 78 cents to a man's dollar.

Our Approach

The solution

There is no single solution for advancing women through their careers. This fund supports women throughout their career journeys from education through promotion and advancement.

Our strategy

The implementation

Strategy 1

Access to education

Introduction

Technology is the fastest growing career field, and fewer women are entering than in the past. We want to encourage more young women to embrace STEM, especially learning to code.

Current milestone

By December 31, we aim to sponsor 20 women from minority backgrounds into code camps through Girls Who Code.

Progress: 6/20

Strategy 2

Fair workplaces

Introduction

Unfair hiring policies and parental leave are two significant drivers of the wage gap. These nonprofits advocate for equality in the workplace.

Current milestone

By December 31, we aim to sponsor PL+US with $2,000 to advocate for fair parental leave.

Progress: 690/2000

Strategy 3

Inspiring women

Introduction

These organization create camaraderie for women in their careers, making sure girls and women find a community, role models and support networks.

Current milestone

By December 31, we aim to provide $500 towards scholarships for woman to attend the Grace Hopper Celebration - the world's largest gathering of women technologists.
