Wonder Women Tech Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that has been creating a global impact to highlight, celebrate, and educate women and the underepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math Industries since 2014. To date we have launched a variety of events, conferences, workshops, hackathons, and STEAM camps, in an effort to create a global ecosystem that nourishes the life cycle of the pipeline through equity, access and opportunity.
The Covid19 Pandemic has forced us to lose 99% of our funding, and to have to cancel all four of our WWT Conferences and Summits this year, as well as all of our in-person workshops and programs.
These initiatives include:
Wonder Women Tech National Conference
Wonder Women Tech Global Summit Washington D.C.
Wonder Women Tech Global Summit New York
Wonder Women Tech International Conference London
An Evening with Wonder Women Tech events in partnership with WeWork (globally)

Through the years, this organization has thrived from the sweat equity and bootstrapping of its Founder, Lisa Mae Brunson, and its founding Co-Producer, Brianna Machado-Rush, and a handful of passionate volunteers who believe in this work and vision. We've raised very little funding to continue to support the vast mission of our organization, and we need YOUR HELP to continue keeping the vision of Wonder Women Tech ALIVE.
We are in unprecedented times, which calls for Wonder Women Tech to develop a pivot strategy to offer a virtual and digital platform. We intend to launch:
The Wonder Women Tech Show Podcast
Wonder Women Tech Virtual Summit in September 16th-19th
Mentor Magic™ Hangout Sessions
#100DaysofCode with Lisa Mae Challenge
Online Career Development Workshops
Resume Review Virtual Lounge
We need your help to stay alive! Our expenses include maintaining our storage unit at Public Storage which holds all of our conference furniture, donations, and marketing collateral. Maintaining a small staff to keep the organization flowing, and inveseting in digital platforms and solutions to continue to offer unique ways to engage our ecosystem and provide career development and education to our global audience.
Please contribute whatever you can! Every dollar makes a difference. Learn more about our impact: www.wonderwomentech.com

Letter from our Founder:
This pandemic has wiped our funding for Wonder Women Tech. Through this journey, I have continued to work w/ my team, incl 14 college interns, while battling Covid for 7 wks. I vow to continue building our global ecosystem which serves women and underrepresented groups in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, & Math industries.
Our current & future generations need us now more than ever. They are our pathway forward. As we navigate a new paradigm, we will need strong leaders, innovative minds, & representation of women, people of color, LGBTQ, the deaf, disabled, & those who don't have access or opportunity to education, mentors, jobs, & resources.
My life is spent on the front lines of Equality, Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging. What this pandemic/illness has taught me is NOW IS THE TIME to stay rooted. This platform is needed to encourage, & build diverse & conscious scientists, technologists, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, filmmakers, visionaries.
Please take part in #GivingTuesdayNow & skip a cup of coffee & Sponsor or Donate to Wonder Women Tech. Every bit helps us move Forward.
I thank you in advance for any contribution you are able to make. <3
