Chasing Grace Premiere Featuring Cheryl Strayed

November 14, 2019

7:00 pm

Episode 3 BOSS LADIES premieres with intimate Q&A with WILD author Cheryl Strayed

The Chasing Grace Project is a docuseries about adversity and resilience among women in the technology industry. Its candid approach to storytelling has been applauded for elevating women’s voices in an industry that has fewer women than 30 years ago (NCWIT) but desperately needs women’s contributions to build the technologies that are defining our future. It uses the power of story to change the culture in tech, which is cited as the primary reason women don’t pursue tech careers or choose to leave.

Strayed’s own story, as detailed in her memoir WILD and major motion picture produced by and starring Reese Witherspoon, is among the best examples of the power of story for women. By stepping into her authentic story, Strayed’s own life and career have been transformed and her journey through adversity to resilience depicted in her memoir can inspire others. Strayed’s involvement in the Chasing Grace Project will increase awareness of women in tech’s experiences, which can lead to cross-industry conversations that empower all women around the world.
