Led by a Board of 26 established women in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry, the nonprofit will host meet-ups, webinars, and educational events. It will also serve as a standing resource for members seeking meetings, referrals, mentorship, and community. While the organization is led by women, anyone can participate in its events and benefit from its network.
The group’s networking events will begin in October 2021, and a national conference is slated for Q3 of 2022. Membership is free and open to all via sign up on the Crypto Connect website.
Chapter Leads, who also sit on the Board, include:
