Upwork Women's Group

Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to build a strong women-at-work environment.

Our vision is to create a community for women and allies across all backgrounds, races and ages to support each other in realizing aspirations, fostering a feeling of belonging and furthering the goal of gender equality and women’s advancement in the workplace.

The Women's Summit

The Women's Summit is the culmination of our work as a group: an annual, all-day event where all the women of Upwork gather together to learn, share experiences, and celebrate achievements. It is meant to create a safe forum to have informative, thought-provoking discussions about challenges related to women’s success in business and society and share strategies and tools for success in growing our careers.
