Seeing is Believing: Margaret Corbin & Military Women Since 1776

What we see informs what we believe we can be - and whether we believe that women strengthen our military, our democracy, and our society. Do you see and believe the contributions of women in military service? Do you know the story of Margaret Corbin's military service in combat in Washington Heights, Manhattan in 1776? Or the stories of women who served in combat from the Revolutionary War through our current era?

Join us for a panel talk, community discussion, and networking event to SEE and BELIEVE in the stories of women veterans! Speakers from the NYC Veterans AllianceNew York Historical SocietyBackward Flag Brewing Co.genEquality, and Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America will weigh in on women veterans in history, the consequences of women veterans not being visible, and how women veterans are leading efforts to close gaps in healthcare and services for women veterans and advocate for equal opportunity for all those who serve, regardless of gender or gender identity. We'll also have a "guess that veteran" challenge, with prizes for participants with the most correct answers!

All are invited to spend this fun, informative, interactive, and meaningful evening with us. We'll have snacks, plus beverages from Backward Flag Brewing Co. Providers of services for veterans & families will also be on hand to connect.

Monday, April 22
6:00 - 8:00PM

Party With A Purpose

Celebrating International Women's Day in the service of others.

The genEquality team and Dumbo Heights WeWork community created 375+ gift bags and inspirational cards for women in local shelters. Thank you to all our attendees and to those who donated toiletries, mini hotel soaps & shampoos, sanitary products, pads & tampons, new socks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and more! The bags were built on March 7, and distributed on International Women’s Day on March 8.

We were proud to partner with the Food Bank for New York City this year.


genEquality Hackathon Showcase + Pitch Competition

Over the last four months, the genEquality Hackathon has created space and opportunities for teams to form and develop innovative solutions to alleviate gender inequality. The Hackathon has engaged participants across the globe - from the United States, Germany, India, Mexico, Japan, Myanmar, and more - in service of building tech + tools that advance gender equality at work, at home, in culture, and in public.

In alignment with our commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #5 (gender equality), the inaugural genEquality Hackathon kicked off in September 2018 during the UN General Assembly / Global Citizen Week, and it concludes on Saturday, January 26, 2019 with our Showcase + Pitch Competition.

Join us to see and learn more about what our participants and teams have developed, and cheer them on as they pitch to a panel of tech executives and investors for a chance to win seed funding and turn their product idea into a market reality!
