She Started It is a groundbreaking documentary that profiles women entrepreneurs as they face the challenges of taking an idea and turning it into a business it in the tech world. Created by women, for young women and girls, it is meant to encourage its audience to go out and learn the skills they will need to be the next Sheryl Sandberg, Oprah Winfrey, or Noramay Cadena.

Additionally, round table discussions will
take place on next steps to bridge the gender gap.
Come join us for an exciting Saturday as we celebrate young women and girls, their talents and skills, and challenge them to explore exciting fields, make new connections, and spend time with people just like them!
