accelerateHER was born out of Founders Forum in June 2016 when we decided to stop talking about the underrepresentation of women in tech and DO something about it. Our mission is to champion and support women working in technology and to break down the barriers that deter women from entering the sector. Help us to accelerate HER. It isn't just the right thing to do for women and girls, it is an economic imperative. By accelerating HER, you will help accelerate the global economy and advance equality both economically and socially.
