digitALL: Innovation And Technology For Gender Equality

Women in tech movements have been around for decades, fostering diversity, equity and inclusion within the male-dominated industry. While intentions and initiatives are clear, there are still issues such as lack of mentorships and female role models, unequal funding allocation and gender bias in the workplace that remain challenging to resolve.
