“We need to be intentionally inclusive. I’m going to task everyone to take a pledge with me. For one year let’s not: 1) moderate an all male panel, insist on diversity, 2) participate on an all male panel, insist on diversity, 3) if you see an all male panel, point it out to the organizer, tell them to be intentionally inclusive. Representation is powerful. Recommend women and insist on diversity.”

– Jamie Moy, Founder, Strongurl

It is great to be part of a female-led group focusing on the technology, and hear people with much expertise in the area share their insights. BLunches give an opportunity to gain from our different backgrounds and strengths, and to strengthen a community of women in tech.”

Blockchain and the Internet – October 2018

Speaker: Elizabeth Thys, Operations Partner of Blockstack
Hosted by Lowenstein Sandler

“In the summer of 2018 I was introduced to Jamie Moy and Strongurl BLunch. I have attended every month since that first introduction as I find the venue terrific.  It has given me a great opportunity to network with a very diverse group of men and women and further my expertise in blockchain.  Jamie does an amazing job of building a network of people interested in the blockchain phenomenon, leading the BLunches and curating great topics for each session.”

Blockchain and Investing – July 2018

Speaker: Caroline Hofmann, COO of Republic
Hosted by Lowenstein Sandler

“I got some laughs in the office when I said I’d be speaking at a blockchain event. The guys didn’t think blockchain was my thing. But I had things to say about blockchain, even if I wasn’t trading alt coins in the off hours and a room packed with BLunchers eager to learn about investing from me. You do not need to be a super technical crypto expert to work in this space. The Strongurl BLunch community is evidence of that.” 

– Caroline Hoffman, COO Republic

Specific to blockchain technology, it is refreshing to have a female-led, focused, supportive group that understands the long-term potential of the technology. Grateful to be a part of the group!”

– Kat Kuzmeskas, President and CEO SimplyVital Health
