Forum fem.talent 2018

Forum fem.talent 2018 '10th years anniversary'– World Wide Women 

Everyday should be International Women's Day! Yesterday, the 9th of March, Forum  fem.talent 2018 took place, celebrating its 10th years anniversary. This conference with the aim of advocating the promotion for equality, was organized by Barcelona Activa and coordinated by Municipality of Barcelona (Ajuntament de Barcelona).

It was a pleasant experience, especially the  keynote speaker Cheryl Miller Van Dyck, and one of the roundtables that included women from different countries, cultures and skin color, were very interesting and inspiring. This concerns the roundtable “Women in Science Parks and incubators” (DonesxDones en parcs científics i tecnològics), which included: 

- Mozhgan Yazdianpour, from Iran who is the Director of International & Scientific Cooperation, Isfahan Science & Technology Town (ISTT), Iran. 

- Hauwa Yabani, from Nigeria who is the Manager Director and CEO at the Abuja Technology Village Free Zone, Nigeria.

Second Women4Tech Summit 2018

Also, this year the Women4Tech Summit was taken place, for the second time at Mobile World Congress. This full-day program is designed for women to include them and promote their involvement in technology and mobile. As for diversity inclusion as a whole at the congress, there was no difference from last year.

The organizer GSMA is bias when it comes to diversity in terms of gender and ethnicity. It was striking that still at the seminars, the keynote speakers and the representatives/executives of companies, more than the majority was male and white. Just like it was stated at the Women4Tech Summit, ‘Diversity drives Innovation’, we support this thought and expect to see this change being implemented at the congress.

Interestingly, is that this year they included more diverse groups onstage, in terms of age, skin color and culture. You had successful women varying in age, countries, skin color and job levels. The remark Diversity4Tech made last year ‘Now adding more diversity in terms of age, skin color and culture is the next step to go for!  just came true!!!
