Date: September 16, 2021
Time: 10.00 – 11.15
What are the possibilities and challenges for women tech entrepreneurs in this time of pandemic and a booming demand for tech solutions and a growing tech industry? What impact does it have on women tech entrepreneurs? How do we create diverse workplaces where women are free to fulfill their professional potential and have the equal access to resources, knowledge and networks as men?
Today, women are still challenged in their pursuit and progression within the tech sector. We understand the importance of gender equality and diversity, but how could you implement policies promoting it at your company? What is it about a company that makes it uninviting for women to apply? Why are tech women still under-represented at most companies? It doesn’t make any sense because obviously there is no difference in skills or competence. They’re out there, but how can you get them into your organization?
In this webinar we bring together experts and women leaders in the tech community for an inspiring session about diversity, inclusion, inspiration and disruption. Welcome to join!
The Ambassador of Sweden H.E. Mr. Johannes Oljelund

“If we don’t change we will continue to have a world build by men for men. I don’t want that. I think this should be the top priority for politicians as well and to make sure that entrepreneurship and diversity is the main target for the future development of Sweden and Europe.”

“New technologies and developments are leading to innovative, interesting and complex (legal) issues. So especially in this sector it is crucial to share best practices, insights, experiences and know how. I believe making connections is key in the Tech sector. This is exactly where the Tech Tables are meant for”.
