What is Spotlight of the Week?

As we know, Empowered Women Empower Women. I plan to live out this mantra by amplifying one of my favorite things: women making their mark in tech. My goal each week is to highlight women I look up to, organizations I support, and general knowledge that I find interesting that pertains to this topic. Please reach out if you have an idea to share, a resource I don't know about yet, or any questions you have relating to any of these spotlights.

Elpha: Where Women Succeed at Work Together

This week I want to talk about the community Elpha. Elpha is a space for women to engage with other women professionally in a safe and healthy environment to foster connection, support, and awareness. I personally have used Elpha to browse the many job applications available on the website, read posts that share advice on various workplace scenarios, and gain awareness for opportunities I potentially may have missed had I not signed up for this AWESOME resource.

Here is a fantastic article talking about the history of Elpha with the two co-founders, Cadran Cowansage and Kuan Luo. I was introduced to Elpha through the YC Job Series: Women Eng in Startups and I related to Cadran discussing firsthand the varying moments in her career where she had wished for a bigger network to lean on. Cadran creatively solved this problem not only for herself but for all of us as well! I highly encourage signing up, and if you would like to learn more about Elpha, visit their FAQ.
