A bit about me...

Zofia Kierner is a Polish-American Innovator in Residence at the University of California, Berkeley, an award-winning social entrepreneur, TEDx speaker, education and gender equality advocate, Forbes 30 under 30 and 25 under 25 laureate, recipient of the Ambassador of Polish Innovation Award and one of the Vogue's top social activists. She founded the Girls Future Ready Foundation, an educational organization that spotlights the power of thousands of young women and runs multiple international projects. After impacting 80,000 girls and generating over $25M worth of impact, she founded 50one, a boutique social impact agency to support companies and individuals with the creation and implementation of their impact efforts. Her goal is to close the social impact gap.

Zofia is a frequent speaker at international conferences or internal company workshops representing the voice of youth, especially when it comes to education, Gen Z in the workplace, female empowerment, global mindset, the role of business in social impact, and everything in between!
