Chasing Grace Episode 2 Screening: Progress and the Power of Community
While most data tell us there’s no progress, the women who work in tech every day know different. Change is incremental but it is happening.

Join Jennifer Cloer, the executive producer and director of the Chasing Grace project for a private screening of Episode Two: Progress and the Power of Community. This episode will explore where we do see progress – in the individual stories of women who have started companies, nonprofit organizations and women-in-tech groups. The challenges they face when they do stand up, speak out or challenge the status quo will also be explored to understand where we’re failing so that we may accelerate progress. The first sign of a movement is organization. The emergence of women in tech groups inside and outside of companies demonstrate that this movement is gaining momentum. Just a few years ago, women in tech groups were few and far between and now they’re commonplace. The episode explores the phenomenon of community for women, the value they place on it and whether or not it’s making a difference in progress.

The Chasing Grace Project is a documentary series about women in tech. It includes six episodes, each focused on a different topic within the women in tech narrative. From the pay gap, online harassment and female entrepreneurship to access to the best jobs, the decision to leave or stay in tech and the role of male allies, the series will illustrate how we pave the way forward.
