Global Women in Blockchain

Our mission is to bring all resources for women under one umbrella to change the world.

Global Women in Blockchain (GWB) is the first international umbrella organization designed to activate and accelerate the powerful partnerships of women to lead in the education, development and promotion of blockchain technologies. Our non-profit group aims to inject much-needed diversity into tech by empowering women through shared business connections and exchanges, association, meet-ups, forums, learning events and more. GWB aspires to have at least one female delegate per country to lead in service of women by fostering an ecosystem of trust, support, inclusion, conscious leadership and socio-economic advancement.

GWB exists to empower women through blockchain technologies by

  • Bringing together, connecting, and promoting all groups that support women and our various causes
  • Organizing and sustaining a community of women dedicated to advancing blockchain and STEM technologies
  • Offering strategic and informed program initiatives and educational resources that foster an inclusive learning environment
  • Creating an atmosphere of collaboration that stimulates and supports innovation within the space

Why Now? Our female consciousness has spoken. We must own our place in this world and in this world-changing technology.  #TheTimeIsNow


Why Blockchain? Because there is one shared, transparent, version of the truth.


Why Join? Because we are #StrongerTogether.  Step forward with us to build the new world of inclusion and equity.
