WOMEN IN THE DIGITAL ERA: UNLEASHING THE POTENTIAL OF FEMALE TALENT FOR A STRONGER EUROPE
Huawei celebrated International Women’s Day by holding a debate on gender equality, diversity and inclusion in the digital technology sector and society as a whole.
The debate, “Women in the Digital Era: Unleashing the Potential of Female Talent for a Stronger Europe”, involved MEPs, representatives from European agencies and industry associations, and Huawei executives, and focused on how to get more women into leadership roles in the digital and wider economy.
“It is a fantastic way to celebrate International Women’s Day. I couldn’t think of a better way to do it, so congratulations to Huawei for the initiative,” said keynote speaker Maria da Graça Carvalho MEP, the European Parliament’s Rapporteur for the flagship report on “Closing the Digital Gender Gap”.
Huawei’s Senior EU Public Affairs Manager, Berta Herrero, moderated the conference’s two panels, “Women’s Participation in Europe’s Recovery” and “Women in Cybersecurity”.
“We are proud to organize these conferences. We are happy to invest our resources in fostering the debate in the cybersecurity and technological fields with respect to equality, diversity and inclusion. Our end goal is to inspire the next generation of women to shape the world of tomorrow, and to build the appropriate foundations for them to be able to do it,” she said.
