GRI’s podcast examines the role of women-led businesses on the road to the 2030 Agenda. The key nugget is “Women Are a Driving Force for the SDGs.”

Through Women in Cloud’s community partnership with Microsoft, we are unlocking Women Tech Founders to develop tech solutions to help advance  SDGs . Last year, we had 5 women founders who were recognized as #BuildFor2030 Hackathon Heroes , and it is exciting to participate for the second year.

Women In Cloud’s mission has always focused on creating economic access for women. 

To achieve that vision, we all need to act as changemakers  which comes in many forms: An Entrepreneur, A Professional, A Community Leader and more. We believe in each of us lies  a changemaker, and you have the potential to step into your zone of genius to activate change and make an impact.

Whether you’re well on your way as a purpose-driven business or just starting out, we are here to support your journey. Take your current offering (or new idea) to the next level and learn how any solution can be built to be more inclusive, accessible, and sustainable.
