The Civic Accelerator
How might we create greater opportunities for women and girls to succeed in today’s economy?
Together with the PwC Charitable Foundation and the Starbucks Foundation, the Civic Accelerator is seeking innovative social ventures that are designing solutions to society’s most intractable social issues with a gender lens.
The potential solutions are many. From interventions in STEM education, workforce, leadership and 21st century skills development, to innovative childcare and public safety solutions, we are interested in exploring a range of solutions and approaches together. We’re looking for innovative technologies, platforms, and other models that create greater opportunity for all women and girls to succeed.
