Women4Tech: Reducing The Gender Diversity Gap In The Startup Ecosystem


Around the world, businesses are recognising the favourable impact that gender diversity has on innovation and valuation. However, despite the clear benefits, the tech industry is still suffering from a low representation of women across the board: developers, executives, entrepreneurs and investors. In this session, opinion leaders representing driving forces in the innovation eco-system, will address questions such as: What best practices can startups adopt in order to attract and maintain a diverse team? Why are women-led startups struggling to raise funds and how can this be changed? How will gender balance impact the startup landscape 4 years from now?
This session is part of the GSMA programme Women4Tech, focused on successfully addressing and reducing the gender gap in the mobile industry. Women4Tech supports the UN SDG #5. More information can be found here:
