At a very young age, my life took an irreversible turn. As a result of a car accident at ten years old, I lost the use of my legs and control of my bladder.

We're told life is full of choices and to succeed you have to "act more like a man." We're not having it. In this post #MeToo and #TimesUp world, we celebrate our strength as women. You don't have to choose between femininity and success. Ladies, let's harness our power.
Starting a company is awesome, empowering, and exhilarating but it can also be scary, hard, or just plain grueling. There is so much to do but don't let that get you down. Listen to the ladies who are in the throes. We're with you.
Drop in on the conversations we are having with a variety of experts, ask them anything, and discuss with other women in the group. This is our "TED stage" where we host interesting people sharing the work they are doing, telling their stories, and sharing their perspectives.
