Therese & Barbara Lawless

On June 21, 2017, the Kapor Center for Social Impact held its inaugural Impact Awards event. Categories included building an inclusive tech ecosystem in Oakland, promoting access to quality STEM education, and gap-closing entrepreneurship. Therese Lawless, one of five distinguished awardees, was recognized for fostering diversity and inclusion in the tech workforce. The Ellen Pao v. Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers matter, in which Ms. Lawless co-counseled, inspired many women in tech nationally and internationally to speak up against gender discrimination and fight for equality in the workplace.
