She++ was Stanford's first conference on women in technology, launched in spring 2012 by then sophomores Ayna Agarwal and Ellora Israni. The conference attracted 200+ attendees from around the Bay Area, and has since evolved into the she++ 2.0 Campaign for Women in Technology. she++ seeks to inspire women to empower computer science. We take a holistic approach to attracting women to computer science, because we believe the social aspects of the field are as appealing as the technical. Ayna and Ellora have built she++ into the Bay Area's only women-in-tech movement for high schoolers, college students, and industry professionals, gathering support from companies (e.g. Facebook, Box), university departments, and venture capital firms (e.g. Andreessen-Horowitz). They have also garnered media attention from Forbes, The Huffington Post, and The Stanford Daily. The she++ 2.0 2012-2013 campaign will include the second annual she++ conference in April 2013, as well as an online Android curriculum, a series of 'Girls Empowering Women' features on leading women in tech, and a web-based documentary. Follow us on Twitter (@sheplusplus), read more about the conference on our website, or watch footage of our panels on YouTube.
10x10: Educate Girls, Change the World (www.10x10act.org) is a global social action campaign with the goal of changing minds, lives, and policy around the importance of educating girls in the developing world. The cornerstone of 10x10 is a major motion picture scheduled for release in March 2013, which tells the powerful stories of 10 girls in 10 different countries. The film is the centerpiece of a global campaign designed to change the world's thinking on the value of the girl and to inspire action through a community of non-profits, media & global influencers, policy leaders, corporations, philanthropists, and grassroots activists. The research uncovered by our award-winning team of journalists has shown that girls' education is the highest-returning investment one can make in breaking cycles of poverty in the developing world. Therefore, in collaboration with our corporate, NGO, and policy partners, 10x10 produces dynamic campaign content to be used for advocacy and awareness by organizations that share 10x10's commitment to educating and empowering girls. This content is ultimately designed to drive actions that help scale resources and support for girl-focused programs and sustainable policy change around the world.
