“Wanderlust is a community of innovative thinkers and makers. It’s also 89% female. AWE is an event created for the emerging generation who are thinking about work differently--aligning their personal passions with their entrepreneurial vision, discarding old office structures, cultures and schedules, and re-envisioning decision-making,” said Co-Founder of Wanderlust, Jeff Krasno. “This conference is an opportunity for this community to gather and learn from up-and-coming contemporaries and veteran leaders. As a colleague of many amazing women (and father of three daughters), I am so proud to have it as part of the Wanderlust experience.””
