Female leaders from local companies, such as Inuit, Qualcomm, San Diego Gas & Electric, HP, and Illumina have come together with universities and entrepreneurs to highlight the amazing accomplishments of women in San Diego County.

The #WomenDriveInnovationSD campaign is being spearheaded by two female San Diego female entrepreneurs – Felena Hanson and Kristin Deuber.

The campaign features the stories, via video and articles, from women who are paving the way for new ideas and technology in San Diego.  The goal with this initiative is to inspire more women to pursue careers in and start businesses related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. We hope this is just the first step in bringing to light what women are doing to make San Diego known as a the city of innovation.

A BIG thank you to the City of San Diego and Mayor Kevin Faulconer for supporting the #WomenDriveInnovationSD initiative.  Catch highlights of the press conference on National Business Women’s Day (10/22/16) at Qualcomm.
