Time: 5:30pm – 7:00pm
Presenter: April Goettle, Bianca Jefferson, and Carina Glover
Last year, Do Space issued a challenge to the community: Omaha women are underrepresented in technical roles, and they are underrepresented in business. What's your big idea to change Omaha for the better?
The Do Space Women Innovators Fellowship was a competitive, 6-month experience that challenged three Fellows to develop new resources and tools to promote the advancement of women technologists and tech entrepreneurs in Omaha. Each Fellow received expert mentorship, a $10,000 stipend, and additional resources to bring her big idea to life.
Our Fellows are ready to share their final projects with you on July 31st:
April Goettle – remoter.tech is a resource website and job board that will promote remote tech work to local talent and employers in Omaha and nearby rural areas.
Bianca Zongrone Jefferson – Why do women choose to stay in or leave tech majors and careers? This local research study will help universities and employers retain diverse tech talent.
Carina Glover – HerHeadquarters is a mobile app that will empower Omaha women entrepreneurs to collaborate with peers in LA, NYC, Miami, and beyond.
Free event. Refreshments and food provided. Parking is free and readily available on the Do Space lot with additional event parking next door at U.S. Bank.
Location: Do Space, 7205 Dodge Street, Omaha.
