The issue of gender diversity in all industries has never been more relevant. Few industries, however, have been as closely associated with this issue than the tech industry.
Over a year ago, the GSMA developed the Women4Tech programme to address gender diversity in the mobile industry. It is designed to increase female leadership in the digital age and supports UN Sustainable Development Goal #5: To achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
MWC 2018 will feature a dedicated Women4Tech Keynote, which will bring together leaders from across the mobile and wider tech industry to highlight best practice in gender diversity and discuss action to engage and empower women in technology.
