Championing Women Founders, Leaders and Change-Makers in Tech.

accelerateHER is a global events series and network which exists to address the under-representation of women in technology and secure an inclusive future across all business. We harnesses a global community of leaders in technology to mobilise change: our events provide founders with the crucial network and visibility they need to raise capital, access new networks and forge new business partnerships. We also equip senior leaders with tools to support a data-driven, action-focused approach to achieving diversity, equality and inclusion in their companies and to accelerate change in our industry. We are women first, but for everyone who is passionate about working towards gender parity.
