/The Project

The Chasing Grace Project is a documentary series about women in tech.

 

The Project seeks to build a more inclusive and transparent culture in tech and to recruit and retain women to help build the future. If we don’t have everyone at the table today, we risk living in a less inclusive world tomorrow. The Project also gives women a platform to be seen and heard for their experiences. Stories are exclusively our own and have the power to change culture and transform others.

 

/The Filmmakers

The Chasing Grace Project is produced by reTHINKit Media, co-founded by Jennifer Cloer, writer and director, and Gary Schillinger, producer and editor.
