This Month on The Fourth Floor
View this email in your browser
Dear Community,

I have been so galvanized and heartened by our community partners like the Ellevate Network, Luminary, ChIPs, i.WILL, Dreamers and Doers and a number of other organizations who have welcomed us as collaborators in pursuit of similar missions during these unprecedented times! 
We at The Fourth Floor believe at the center of all of this powerful collaboration is the understanding that gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation to support a more rapid recovery post-COVID and achieve all of the Sustainable Development Goals. This has never been more true than this moment, when the effects of the pandemic could reverse the limited progress made to date when it comes to the balance of money and power and gender equality.
On a quasi-related note, I am thrilled to announce we have been selected as one of 30 ventures world-wide to participate in Impact Hub and Adidas' global Close The Gap ProgramWe will be sure to keep you posted.

Happy October!
Breen, Founder
UPCOMING EVENTS

Wow!!! We had quite the turnout at our first GC Roundtable last Thursday! Due to the massive interest, we had to upgrade our Zoom account to accommodate everyone. We've hit on something important to our community and we are thrilled to continue the conversations!
As promised, we are having more. GC Roundtables are free, interesting, and open to anyone (not just members of The Fourth Floor).

Join us for the next GC Roundtable:
