Kate Brodock, CEO
Kate has played an active leadership role in the women in tech ecosystem for the past decade, having led a global non-profit focused on women in technology and entrepreneurship as its President for several years.
Most recently, she was CMO of untapt, an AI-driven tech talent marketplace based in NYC and has held the role of Adjunct Professor in PR and Marketing at at Syracuse University.

When she’s not doing all *that*, she’s a very non-professional (but adventurous!) athlete, an equally as non-professional musician, can be found outdoors in any weather — skiing, biking, hiking, sailing — loves a good meal with bubbly, craft beer and good friends, hilariousness and life. Her husband is a web-developer-turned-beer-guy and they now live on a hops farm in Upstate, NY. She can be found on Twitter at @just_kate.
Emily Sanders Hopkins, Editor
Emily is Women 2.0’s editor.

She has been a contributing editor at Scholastic Inc. and WeAreTeachers.com and has won numerous awards for marketing and advertorial content.
She holds a BA from West Virginia University and an MA from Johns Hopkins University.
On the side, she loves to read dictionaries. Her other hobbies include writing poetry, drawing cartoons, and Crossfit. Her erstwhile fashion/humor blog, What To Wear This Very Second, has stood the test of time, sort of.
Beth Santos, Social Media and Content Manager

Don't ask her what her favorite place to travel is, there are too many to pick from!
Alison Cheung, Program Manager
Alison is the program manager at Women2.0. She is also the Chief of Staff of Headstart, a revolutionary recruiting tool which uses Machine Learning to help companies identify which candidates would be the best fit for their job opportunities.
Previously the Marketing Brand Lead at Google in London, she has always believed in the importance of spreading awareness of the benefits and potential of technology, as well as its risks and the problem of the democratization of technology, resulting in unequal access. Ultimately, technology needs to be put to good use and to empower its users. Therefore, being at the forefront of shaping technological products and their marketing message truly excites her.
Empowerment has always been her primary goal in life. At university, she provided over 200 students with international volunteering exchanges to enable them not only to grow personally and professionally, but also to contribute towards helping others grow. Professionally, she has stayed true to this goal and endeavoured to work on products that add significant value to both consumers and businesses, such as Android and Think With Google.
In her free time, you'll find her in a coffee shop trying to strike up conversations with coders (more like pestering) or in a yoga studio slipping on my yoga mat. She is improving... slowly but surely.
