Co-Founder And Chief Executive Officer at PowerToFly

I am the Co-Founder and CEO of PowerToFly.com -a community of working women. We're passionate about improving the workplace and aspire to work with companies committed to diversity and inclusion. We host daily video live chats with female thought leaders and invest in up-skilling.We are a safe space for women, trans women, non-binary or anyone elsewhere on the LGBTQI+ spectrum.We are global - our own team is on 17 countries and is proud to give careers to women in Palestine, Egypt, Argentina, Botswana and Ecuador among many others.

Prior to that I dedicated 7 years of my life to being CTO at Avaaz.org - the largest global online activist community, with over 40 million members working on issues ranging from climate change to war on women to genocide. I built up their distributed tech team from 0 to 20 (located on 6 continents) and saw the tech platform through the organization's growth from 0-33 million members.
During my graduate study at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU (ranked 2nd to MIT Media Lab by Newsweek) I got involved with physical computing, robotics and wearables.
Over my 19 years of professional experience, I worked in a number of startups and even had fun teaching robotics at NYC schools.
