On International Women’s Day : #WomenTechTheLead [fr]

On Women’s International Day (March 8th), the Consulate will host an exceptional conference about Women in Tech. Come join us!

What if Mark Zuckerberg had been named Mary Zuckerberg or Steve Job, Stephanie Job? They might not have succeeded in finding investments to create their companies and the USA would be deprived purely and solely of $63 billion of net profits per year.

Inequalities between men and women are clearly visible in the Tech sector. It is still incredibly challenging for women to create their own firm and find serious investments. Yet, some of them did found their tech business and achieved their goal. Indeed, women’s presence in the Tech industry increases 238% quicker than men and several studies explain how women achieve better statistics when they take the lead of a firm. Something seems to be happening in this area and being a woman could become a real advantage.

What kind of background is necessary? How can this tough obstacle course be managed? To discuss it in the feminine form, we will have the pleasure of welcoming French and American leaders of the Tech ecosystem.

Join us to celebrate women’s power and potential ! This is a free event, opened to everyone. RSVP mandatory at rsvp.new-york-fslt@diplomatie.gouv.fr
