Hear the story of one female  computer scientist as she navigated through some of America’s most  esteemed technology companies, built a career in Silicon Valley and  then had to start over after moving to Prague when her husband became  U.S. Ambassador to the Czech Republic.

Women Accelerators (formerly de la Femme) is a Massachusetts organization passionate about promoting the advancement of women and bridging the gender gap. This can be seen in the wage gap and under-representation of women in senior-level positions and the boardroom, from Corporate 100 to startups. Our mission is to provide a centralized network and community where career-focused women can access resources tailored toward their career goals. We provide resources and information to help women efficiently navigate work opportunities and to provide a supportive environment that will nurture female leaders. Our vision is to generate a community of like-minded, high-achieving women, who help each other to succeed in the workplace.
