The Constant Advocate with Eva Helen

Growing up in Sweden, Eva Helen thought that men and women were afforded equal opportunities. Research for her college thesis called for a rude awakening, however, when she realized gender inequality remained prevalent. Allying herself with a sisterhood of passionate advocates for equality, Eva continued her journey of advocacy throughout her career as a tech startup founder.

Now in her Third Act, Eva looks forward to releasing her book this fall, Women in Tech, a Book for Guys. She is a firm believer in the importance of involving men in the fight for women’s rights, especially concerning advancement in the workplace. Since pre-tiring, she has successfully founded her company EQ Inspiration and led a series of workshops called “Women in Tech, an event for guys,” sharing a structured approach for men to advocate for and mentor women.
