Webinars: Exponential Equity: Leveraging Technology to Support Sexual Assault Survivors

The Singularity University Women’s Impact Network (WIN) is working to increase access to the information and tools that enable women and female identifying folks to reach their highest potential and come together in community, solidarity, and collective action.

To meet these aims, WIN is launching an Exponential Equity Webinar series which will feature people working on solutions related to gender, diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity—and how to scale these efforts exponentially. WIN is kicking off this series by addressing the topic of “Leveraging Technology to Support Sexual Assault Survivors.” In this on-demand webinar, you’ll hear an important dialogue between Jessica Ladd, founder of Project Callisto, and Elie Losleben Calhoun, founder of the Rape Crisis Counseling app, along with SU’s Molly Pyle and Stacy Maldonado, co-chairs of WIN.

Watch this on-demand webinar to:

  • Learn about important resources and interventions that are available to support sexual assault survivors
  • Discover the role technology can play to scale these critical efforts

At Singularity University, we are united in our common purpose to empower a diverse global community of nearly 200,000 leaders, entrepreneurs, and inspired solvers working to tackle humanity’s most urgent challenges and achieve success in an era of unprecedented disruption. We support our community and clients through empathy and acceptance, and we are cultivating a new kind of customer hero through our innovative and transformative programs. Fulfilling our mission entails a commitment to inclusivity, diversity, and genuine acceptance.
