Clue's second Berlin Affair took place September 7-9 at a castle outside of the city. We teamed up with our friends at the language learning app Babbel to host another impactful event with some of the most influential female voices across the globe.
The purpose of the Berlin Affair is to unite influential women to develop what it means to have a powerful presence on the internet, and how to use that position for good.
Across three days the diverse group of attendees formed meaningful connections, discussed intersectionality and empowered each other to be vocal about important topics on their platforms.
These 50 unique women shared their experiences working in the technology and media sphere; they bonded, supported and encouraged each other in a picturesque environment.
Organized talks led by established female leaders addressed topics including ageism, sexism, racism, homophobia and reproductive health. These fireside chats instigated emotional responses that cultivated new ways to communicate these discriminatory issues to their followers across many cultures.
