Stephanie_Stacey-9001To celebrate Women’s History Month, AdRoll execs Stacey Manes and Stephanie King will participate in Outward Bound California’s second annual City Skyline Challenge in the largest gathering of female rappellers in San Francisco history.

We are calling on other women leaders in technology to take the leap for a good cause. To date, Google’s Helen Hwang, GoPro’s Sabrina Garretson, Zendesk’s Michelle Carranza, and Cover Media Labs’ Shylaja Ramchandra have signed on to accompany AdRoll and other local female celebrities.

Outward Bound - Day 2-226“We jumped at a chance to contribute to this historic event for women and girls. Our participation in the Outward Bound California’s City Skyline Challenge will help bring awareness to many of AdRoll’s core values: promoting diversity and opportunity for women, bettering our community, and advancing educational opportunities of all kinds,” said Stacey.

Strategy firm PR & Company came up with the idea of breaking the rappel record as a way to celebrate Women’s History Month and promote women leaders across sectors. On March 19–20, dozens of women and girls representing all sectors of San Francisco’s community will rappel off the Hyatt Regency at Embarcadero Center to Market Street. The effort will raise more than $300,000 to support outdoor leadership programs for deserving Bay Area youth. We are seeking other women executives to fill the last available rappels with a campaign titled #FearlessLadyLeaders.

IMG_0976“At AdRoll we strongly believe #FearlessLadyLeaders can come from all walks of life. We have a history of working with organizations like National Center for Women & Information Technology, Mission Bit, Hackbright Academy, and Larkin Street Youth Services to give back the community and help support organizations that will drive the development of future women engineers, entrepreneurs and business leaders,” said Stephanie. “This initiative is a unique and fun way to shine light on a topic that has been met with much criticism in today’s media landscape.”

The kickoff of the two-day women’s rappel will happen on March 19:

  • What: City Skyline Challenge’s largest female rappel
  • When: Thursday, March 19, 2 pm–5 pm
  • Where: The Hyatt Regency at Embarcadero Center on Market Street

AdRoll is thrilled to see continued interest from the tech community as more female leaders join the roster every day. Support us on social media!
