Worthy Women started with a vision and a belief that everything we do stems from a place of whether we "feel worthy" or are hustling to make others believe we are.
Too often, we play it small or safe; we talk ourselves down from our dreams and second-guess our abilities. It's easy to forget the possibilities we envision for ourselves stem from what we think we deserve. To build relationships, businesses, and find our creativity, we must first accept and believe we are worthy of them, because we inherently are worthy. We created our free monthly event series as a safe space for tech and creative entrepreneurial women to learn best practices needed for success, but also to create a safe space and supportive community of amazing women, who dare to play by their own rules, forge their own path, and live their true self-worth. So, ask yourself… When did you realize you were worthy? When did you decide you were worth more than ‘that'?

the Hip Hop Caucus
Founded in 2004, Hip Hop Caucus is a national, non-profit, and non-partisan organization that connects the Hip Hop community to the civic process to build power and create positive change. The Hip Hop Caucus emerged from four organizations in 2004: Russell Simmons’ Hip Hop Summit Action Network, P. Diddy’s Citizen Change (“Vote or Die!”), Jay Z’s “Voice Your Choice”, and AFL-CIO’s “Hip Hop Voices.” Over the past decade, Hip Hop Caucus has become a sustainable organization with grassroots infrastructure in twenty major U.S. cities. We strategically partner with entertainment industry leaders and national and local advocacy organizations, and we have a respected presence in the halls of the U.S. Congress, the White House, many federal agencies, and the United Nations.
AIDS Healthcare Foundation
The Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is a global nonprofit organization providing cutting-edge medicine and advocacy to over 599626 people in 36 countries. We are the largest provider of HIV/AIDS medical care in the U.S. AHF funds its mission to rid the world of AIDS through a network of pharmacies, thrift stores, healthcare contracts, and other strategic partnerships. Generating new, innovative ways of treatment, prevention, and advocacy has been the hallmark of our success. We are leading a mass testing initiative to identify and treat the 25 million people, who are unaware they are infected.
By advocating big goals–such as having 1 billion people tested each year–AHF hopes to eliminate older, more time-consuming methods. Since 1987, AHF has cared for thousands of people living with HIV and AIDS worldwide. As we create and implement new programs in communities across the U.S. and abroad, we expand delivery of healthcare and influence over policy to save more lives.

Take Back the Night
In the late 1960s, TBTN held events in the United States after coming stateside from Europe. The Foundation’s Board members and supporters came together to unite the hundreds of events being held under the TBTN banner around the world. Our Mission as a charitable 501(c)3 Foundation is to end sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual abuse, and all other forms of sexual violence.
Our Board of Advisors represents a cross-section of those who have a long-standing history with Take Back the Night and passion for our cause. We create safe communities and respectful relationships through awareness events and initiatives. Women across the world are taking back their voices by speaking out against these crimes, but there is much to be accomplished in the fight to end sexual violence. Crimes of this nature continue to appear in the news in epidemic proportions. As the history of Take Back the Night continues to be written, its mission to end sexual violence for all remains a beacon of hope for the millions affected by crimes of violence. We have made great strides, but our march is far from over. Take Back the Night Events occur in over 30 countries worldwide. Over 600 campuses and communities have held Take Back the Night Events. We have reached over 30 million people with our message, our support, and our commitment to ending sexual violence.
About Slutty Girl Problems
When Lorrae Bradbury started Slutty Girl Problems in July 2011, she was fresh out of a breakup from a long-term relationship and embracing her “slutty phase” as a newly single girl. She turned to Twitter to express herself anonymously and talk about all the things that were so “taboo” about hooking up. As her follower count grew, she realized women throughout the world related to and shared her experiences. She continued to tweet, write, and connect with her followers… realizing SGP could become so much more. With a lot of hard work, ambition, and a dream she just couldn’t stop… she launched SluttyGirlProblems.com in January 2014, turning her “slutty baby” into a worldwide empowerment movement.
The Unslut Project
The UnSlut Project promotes gender equality, sex positivity, and comprehensive, age-appropriate sex education for all ages. This is a collaborative space for sharing stories and creating awareness about sexual bullying, "slut" shaming, and related issues. It is up to each of us to evaluate and take responsibility for our own assumptions and interactions. When I heard about the tragic suicides of girls like Rehtaeh Parsons, Amanda Todd, and Audrie Pott, I was devastated and reminded of my own experience as a girl labeled the school "slut." At the time, I didn't feel comfortable confiding in my parents or other adults in my life. I would have loved to have reassurance this time would pass and my life would get better.
