Addressing the Gender Gap: Inspiring Women in ICT?

Women continue to be severely underrepresented in three quarters of the world’s “jobs of tomorrow”- according to the 2021 Global Gender Gap Report from the World Economic Forum. It requires the efforts of both the public and the private sector to overcome the gaps between men and women in terms of internet access, tech engagement, and tech leadership to increase female representation in Cloud Computing, Data and AI, Engineering, and Product Development.

In this one-hour panel we will explore some of the key issues facing business on addressing the gender gap from the Latin America and the Caribbean perspective and how gender inclusiveness initiatives in the job market has had commercial benefits to participating businesses.
