We focus on networking and connecting with others, leveraging and learning about technology, learning new skills and finding jobs, finding mentors and interns, and gaining access to support and information.
Webgrrls' mission is to help women succeed in an increasingly technical workplace and world through networking, exchanging job and business leads, and teaching new skills.
Webgrrls International is a mission-led corporation. Our mission is the guiding principle that helps us determine day-to-day activities, projects and partnerships. On both an international, national, regional and local level, the structure affords us solid foundation from which we can extend our reach, strengthen our voice and implement our vision.
Long before "corporations" existed, businesses were small and community-based. The wellbeing of a company was directly related to its community. Today, we have become accustomed to expecting corporations to act solely in their own short-term self-interests, often to the detriment of the community as a whole. Businesses are not expected to care for people, a mission or the common good. Some companies attempt to counteract this image by donating to non-profit organizations. It is rare that a business is actually structured to focus on long-term solutions, missions and goals.
Webgrrls is one of the new breed of mission-led incorporated organizations because we believe business can, and should, be a positive force in society.
