Rad-Girls.com 

Rad Girls is a celebration of spirited women across the gender spectrum who constantly achieve, innovate, and inspire. Most importantly, Rad Girls is about collaboration. It is about making sure that we actively light one other’s torches because we burn brighter together.

I started this community in 2014, after feeling frustrated by the lack of women in power in my current place of employment. I was seeking mentorship,and began to reach out to local businesswomen in the hope that they would meet me for coffee to discuss their careers and provide advice.  I realized that I could share these powerful insights with the world if I just recorded and transcribed our conversations and the published them to my blog.

In addition to the blog, Rad Girls hosts an annual Rad Awards celebrations and the monthly Rad Girls In Tech meetup.
