Follow StartuptoEnterprise.com on Google News

The technology space is largely male-dominated, even today. Women and the nonbinary are most certainly freer than before to call shots and make decisions that move global businesses & influencing economies. But, modern-day conferences, seminars, and now online digital events lack gender diversity when it comes to representation. We don’t get to hear about many women leaders until they break the roof of the Whitehouse’s or the glass hall of the Swedish Nobel Committee or ages after we’ve lost them.

Enter the Digital Innovation Virtual Conference 2020. You have 9 women leaders from global technology companies ready to meet on Nov 5, 2020, during the digital innovation virtual conference organized by InnovationDigi. Yes, a large part of the decision making is in control of the Sponsors. InnovationDigi could only make a mindful proposal to nominate more of their women in leadership.
