We are convinced that for this initiative to succeed we need to be transparent with our policies, candidates selection criteria, and monetary donations. Building trust starts with transparency.
We do this because we have experienced it ourselves, or heard of numerous cases were an initiative like this could have made a difference.
How does this work?
In the section below you will see all the donations made by date and anonymised.. These monetary donations will go to cover specific ticket requests to conferences, and travel & accommodation requests. The incomes and outcomes will appear here. If you have any questions regarding any of the transactions, send us an email.
It is our compromise to help women in technology, computer science and information security to attend conferences in order to boost their career. Our compromise is the transparency of this cause; to build trust and to be accountable for our actions.
- We have two main sources for donations: Stripe and PayPal
- Each merchant charges a fee for the transaction. The fee is relative to the amount of money transferred. For a 100 USD transaction PayPal charges 4.70 USD and Stripe 6.20 USD.
- Donations made in non USD dollars are converted to USD. The "amount received" will always be in USD dollars. The transferred amount and the fee will be in the currency used for the donation.
- Donations that do not specify a purpose will be used for speakers travel funding or to buy tickets to specific conferences based on special requests received and evaluated.
