About

 

Within is a collection of content and experiences for women in design and technology. Built around connection, reflection, learning and creativity, each experience is crafted to bring together a community and conversation that inspires women to lead as their full selves.

Our ultimate goal is to design new models for leadership inspired by the ways women naturally lead.

Natasha makes things happen before anyone else realizes what needs to happen. She’s a magician of sorts, working happily behind the scenes so that all of Within’s dreams go off without a hitch. In her previous life, she made many things at Airbnb happen.
