Like many women, Changemaker Chat Co-Founders Jess and Brie care deeply about excelling in their careers and being forces for good in their communities. To achieve their goals, they sought guidance – they read the latest books and articles, sought (the few) women leaders in their lives for advice, and turned to friends for support. Yet, they found this inefficient and often ineffective. There weren’t enough hours in the day to read everything, and they were missing out on real stories from women who have come before them.
Jess and Brie created Changemaker Chats as a way to expose early and mid- career women to the inspiring stories and journeys of female leaders in order to encourage women to go after their personal and professional goals.
What started with 30 women in New York City has expanded to a diverse, global network of women who lead chats across the world, all the while fostering the next generation of female leaders.
