About the event
International Women's Day 2021: #ChooseToChallenge
In recognition of International Women's Day 2021, we will be celebrating the women in our TSL community by hosting a special Founder Stories session with some amazing female members.
Join us in this conversation as we chat about positive change and opening the dialogue around:
- women in tech and startups,
- "modern day" women, and
- the challenges, successes, and celebrations of female founders and female-led startups.
Individually, we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let's all #ChooseToChallenge.
