The eWorldwide Group Organized a Thematic Workshop “Global and Local Women Technopreneurs; Journey to Success” at WSIS Forum, Geneva, Switzerland on 19th March 2018 at 13.15 – 14.00
Over the past two decades, there has been great debate amongst development practitioners, policy makers, development agencies and civil society for the need to showcase and share women role models who are actively engaged in the space of STEM. It has been argued that due to the lack of women role models, girls and young women are reluctant to engage in this space. Furthermore, the stereotype and perception that science and technology are dominated, controlled and belongs only to men further prevents girls from engaging in this space. This is a fallacy, which needs to be addressed. Therefore, this session has been designed to tackle this misconception by highlighting the unique journeys taken by women technopreneurs. However, recognizing that women are not a homogenous group, we have brought together the success stories of diverse women from all parts of the world. The panelist used the gender lens to provide deep insight of their personal experiences through the journey of invisible and visible barriers that exist in the cultural, social and traditional context, along with those experienced within multiple industries that they overcame. The objective is to inspire, motivate and encourage the next generation of women and girls that STEM offers a path that can be taken to achieve their dreams. This session conducted in an interactive manner to maximize the participants’ engagement with the international multi-stakeholder panelists from the private sector, government and development agencies.
