Kaleidoscope Society is the first of its kind website for and by Women with ADHD that aims to dispel stigma and build community of support. The site features interviews with trailblazing women in a variety of fields, as well as curated expert advice. Since launching in 2015 the site has connected thousands of women around the world through original content and has been featured in Teen Vogue, Broadly, Bustle and the International Conference on ADHD.
“It is an incredible honor to be nominated for best community website alongside mainstream platforms such as Tumblr and Patreon,” said Kaleidoscope Society’s founder Margaux Joffe who also has ADHD.
For too long, women with ADHD have struggled in silence due to stigma. We are thrilled that the Webbys are recognizing this important topic, and we hope the awareness generated will help us continue to change perception in society.Margaux Joffe, Founder of Kaleidoscope Society
Up to 75% of women with ADHD go undiagnosed until adulthood with life damaging consequences, creating what has been called a “lost generation of women.” Those who are diagnosed face unique challenges due to lack of scientific knowledge, resources and public understanding. Kaleidoscope Society aims to connect and empower these women, while dispelling stigma and changing public perception of the condition.S
