Extracurricular started as a collection of stories from working millennials trying to balance purpose, identity, and personal well-being. The community now offers experiences and peer circles. In celebration of Women’s History Month, Extracurricular is partnering with several tech companies to host a series of events in March to help working womxn navigate the tough stuff.
"We’re bringing working millennial womxn together in New York for a month of weekly panels, conversations, and workshops on topics like burnout, navigating finances and money, to balancing work-life as a new parent," said Madeline Vu, Founder of Extracurricular and product design director at a high growth tech startup.
