Associate Director, Velocity

Why is it important to you to be a HeForShe Campus Advocate? 

Women represent half our population and therefore half of tech users. Nonetheless, women are severely underrepresented in the worlds of technology and entrepreneurship. I believe Velocity, as the entrepreneurial arm at UW, can play a key part in encouraging more women entrepreneurs on campus and my role as Campus Advocate for the HeForShe campaign is an important opportunity to actively engage in initiatives that will raise awareness and encourage more women entrepreneurs across the University community.
