Gender in Tech

Cocktail Reception


This special occasion is EIF’s contribution to the ongoing public debate on the topic of gender and equal opportunities and, more specifically, of gender in the tech sector. At this reception, we will hear views and reflections on what could be done in the future to help more women have the opportunity to succeed.

Prominent women professionals will join our panel and tell their stories – what roles do they have in the tech sector? What issues - if any - have they faced because of their gender? What can be improved and how?
