Women in Industry and Innovation

The conference “Women in Industry and Innovation” will gather government representatives, private sector actors, experts, entrepreneurs, researchers and other relevant stakeholders, in an effort to promote the development of an inclusive and sustainable environment for the economic empowerment of women. It is organised in collaboration with UNWomen, FAO and with the support of the Italian government. Inspired by the stories of female leaders and entrepreneurs, the format of the conference aims to ensure a high level of engagement and interaction among stakeholders and participants. Owing to current circumstances and social distancing measures, the conference will take place on a web-based platform. The conference will have live sessions, networking spaces, virtual exhibit booths and more information initiatives empowering women. The themes of the conference include: 
  • Harmessing the potential of women-led entrepreneurship and self-employment in value chain development
  • Realising opportunities for women's empowerment through ICTs and digital technologies
  • Empowering women in circular economy: Bridging the gender gap

Prior to the conference, participants will have the chance to join the conversation in our online collaboration lab which will go live on July 1st and remain open for a week. The outcomes of the lab will be fed into the roundtable discussions of the conference.
