The Orange Silicon Valley Women in Tech program promotes diversity and inclusion in the tech industry and aims to inspire women. We are a community who support each other and exchange perspectives on topics such as health, gender equality, education, abilities, race, wellness, physical resources, age, economic and social position, and more.

About the event:

By 2025, the women’s health market is estimated to be globally worth over $50B. During this Women in Tech event, we will address how women’s wellness and specifically female reproductive health has emerged as a FemTech Category to watch, offering a wide selection of innovative products, devices and services that educate and destigmatize issues for girls and women, ranging from wellness apps to clean online marketplaces to contraception as a service. Come hear from innovative founders and healthcare professionals on how these new business models are empowering women around the world to take charge of their health in new ways.

Topics to be discussed:

– The current state of the industry for gynecologic wellness and the key players in the tech and medical fields

– The taboos and limitations for female wellness companies

– Access to products and services across countries and cultures

– Societal market trends that have influenced the surge in female wellness

– Education on female health and wellness via social media channels

Speakers:

Rebecca Story– CEO of Bloomi

Sophia Yen– CEO & Co-Founder of Pandia Health

Alice ZhengMcKinsey & Company Consultant focused on women’s health

Speakers: 100% of our ticket sales will be donated to The Cup

In an effort to increase our collective impact beyond the evening’s conversation, going forward we will sell tickets for our Women In Tech event series. All of the profit generated will be donated to a selected charity that supports female empowerment on a global scale. For this event, 100% of our ticket sales will be donated to The Cup, a non-profit that empowers unprivileged girls worldwide by providing them with sustainable menstrual cups and comprehensive education on sexuality and reproductive rights.

Each $20 ticket represents one menstrual cup that a young Kenyan woman will be able to use for 10 years. In addition to supporting menstruation with dignity, The Cup engages young women in training sessions that close the access and knowledge gap around female health matters.

Thank you for embarking on this journey with us. Your engagement contributes to making a more wide-reaching impact outside of the Silicon Valley bubble.

Opportunities

This program promotes diversity and inclusion in the tech industry and aims to inspire women. We provide year-round events to a community of women who wish to advance each other professionally and personally. Women in Tech was created at the end of 2018 as a series of intimate events where women would feel empowered to ask questions and share their experiences in the workplace. The goal of this program is to arrange a safe space to discover, learn, and mingle among each other. In order to meet new people and further spread our outreach, we encourage our contacts to bring a +1 of their choice

“One challenge in the FemTech space is explaining how your product will be expanded into a platform of sorts, and figuring out a way to justify a large evaluation.”

— Vanessa Larco

“Women working in tech especially have a lot of pressure on them, as this is a male dominant sector. It’s not emphasized enough that wellness is key to accomplish a successful professional life.”

— Kari Sulenes

“If you don’t have those role models, of people or women who have gone to college, or gone into tech jobs, you won’t be as inspired to do that”

— Aude Anquetil
