  • It has already reached more than 10,000 people and, with scaling through media and partnerships, anticipates reaching ten times as many in 2018.
  • The goal is for the leadership and mentoring projects to reach a million people by 2020 and a billion by 2030.
  • Currently women only hold about 5% of CEO positions at S&P 500 companies and are less than a quarter of national parliamentarians.
  • Analisa has received numerous awards, including being selected as a WEF Young Global Leader and a NASA Datanaut.
