As a partner to the United Nations, we’ve pledged to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals, a set of 17 initiatives adopted by member states in 2015 focused on impacting the world for good by 2030.
Last year, we also partnered with Microsoft to participate in their #BuildFor2030 campaign to make sure that everyone has access to technology developed by female tech founders. Together, we highlighted companies that align with the SDGs and bring us one step closer to creating an inclusive digital economy.
This year, WiC was invited to nominate solutions developed by female tech founders. We are so thrilled to celebrate the members of the Women in Cloud Microsoft Cloud Accelerator being featured in Microsoft’s #BuildFor2030 Campaign. The United Nations Sustainable Goal is at the heart of Women In Cloud’s movement, in an attempt to create opportunities for all.
As a global movement creating economic access to advance female technology entrepreneurs, we are beyond excited that our Accelerator is generating the desired impact. Women in Cloud was inspired by the United Nation and we as an organization are dedicated to contribute to UN SDG #5 – Gender Equality.
Congratulations!! WiC founder solutions has been selected to participate in Microsoft’s #Buildfor2030 Campaign. Read about this campaign at this blogpost by Gavriella Schuster and see full featured list of partners.
