''The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty.”
Winston Churchill

IWN France is pleased to invite you to an evening intended to take stock of the role of women in technological innovation, more particularly innovations linked to financial markets. The representation of women within this ecosystem remains marginal. However, since the future of technologies should not be the one of inequalities, we proposed to various stakeholders to discuss about the impacts of innovation on gender equality: Why are so few women represented in jobs with strong innovative or technological component? How can we make these areas an asset for gender equality?

Hélène DECKX VAN RUYS, Co-pilot of the “Women and AI” working group at the French Laboratoire de l’égalité will talk about the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on equality between women and men .'

The ICMA Women’s Network (IWN) provides an impartial and open forum to encourage, support and inspire women at all stages of their careers and to promote the goal of gender equality within the financial markets. This network aims to foster connections between colleagues of different generations and seniority levels, thereby helping to drive inclusion across the sector. The IWN also actively welcomes participation from all genders and ethnicities, recognizing that broad participation is essential to achieving positive and lasting change.

Admissions: This in-person event is free to attend and open to all.
