Wish You Were Here
We teamed up with Forbes/Women @ Forbes during SXSW to achieve a mutual goal: women supporting women in business, relationships, and beyond.
Through two events we Celebrated Women, learned about each others respective industries and become overwhelmingly inspired.
Here are a few of the women we were honored to have on our panel along side Bumble Founder and CEO, Whitney Wolfe and Bumble's VP of Brand Content, Alex Williamson.
Gloria Feldt: Cofounder and president of Take The Lead the new women’s leadership movement to prepare, develop, inspire, and propel women to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025. Her journey from teen mom and high school dropout from rural Texas to president and CEO of the world’s largest reproductive health and advocacy organization, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, to best-selling author and visionary leader for women’s equality inspires both men and women.
Lynn Perkins: CEO & Founder of UrbanSitter, an online and mobile service that is reinventing the way parents find trusted childcare. Since its start in 2011 over 2 million hours of babysitting have occurred on the UrbanSitter platform.
Amani Al-Khatahtbeh: Founding editor-in- chief of MuslimGirl.net, the leading online magazine for American Muslim women. Amani’s opinions have been quoted in such publications as Fortune, Wall Street Journal, and International Business Times, among others. She is a Forbes 30 Under 30 and has previously consulted Arab governments on youth interests.
Deepti Sharma: CEO and Founder of FoodtoEat, a service where companies order team meals from mom and pop food vendors. She’s helping immigrant-owned small businesses use technology to grow. She’s a Forbes 30 Under 30 alumna and recently joined the NYC Food & Beverage Hospitality Council.
