Join us virtually on International Women's Day as we celebrate the people and companies who #choosetochallenge perceptions and misconceptions, and lead by example in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). On this momentous day, we will be launching the SG Women in Tech Company Pledge Initiative and diving deep into discussion with leaders in the STEM field.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are inevitably transforming the world with countless possibilities and opportunities for all. Despite the growing demand for STEM roles, merely 30% of those in these industries are women. What can be done to encourage greater diversity, equality and inclusion for our daughters of tomorrow?
By choosing to include and diversify, businesses and the world will benefit from strengthened innovations and advancements in STEM, especially in the age of disruptive science and technologies. Hear from leaders how they #choosetochallenge the inequality in their industry and their visions for the future of science and tech.
Some said mentors are the secret weapons of successful startups. As a startup founder, you will likely have countless options for potential mentors. However, getting the right mentors and building a healthy relationship with mentors are common challenges.
Join us in celebrating SG Women in Tech’s first anniversary at our live webinar! Themed Action for Impact, the event will celebrate our progress over the past year, update on new collaborations among industry partners and present actionable initiatives that companies can adopt to grow our Women in Tech community.
