I had a fabulous time last night at the gorgeous home of Priya Guha, UK San Francisco Consul General. I was there for a reunion of the British Airways #ungrounded 130 innovators.
Last June I was selected to be one of 130 innovators on a plane, for a hackathon in the sky. We all flew from San Francisco to London, our team had the challenge “Fostering women in STEM”. We won our group with our concept AdvisHer: Advise, Advocate, Accelerate.
Another great project to come out of #ungrounded was Beacons in a backpack. A great idea to connect backpackers with remote communities providing wifi connection and STEM information at the same time.
It was so great to catch up with everyone last night. From my team mates @Whurley and @6gems to all the other really cool and interesting people on the flight. I look forward to more reunions and to helping decide what should happen on the next #ungrounded flight. Thank you British Airways and UKTI in San Francisco for a great experience and my wonderful friends Whurley, Gina Bianchini and Arthine Cossey van Duyne for making my trip possible. Love you guys.
