Today is International Women’s Day and it felt like a great time to celebrate the role of women in the innovation and entrepreneurship community. For years we’ve heard about the proverbial ‘glass ceiling’ but from our vantage point, with a global window into the innovation community, we can see that it’s being shattered. Working together to ensure an equitable work force, free from bias and discrimination, ensuring that women not only get their rightful seat at the table, but that their voices can shift and change the narrative is increasingly important. We are proud to feature an increasing number of women in our INNOVATE Series as Thought Leaders – strong, purpose driven women, all working in their respective fields to further causes that benefit people and the planet. The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow” and it’s seems very fitting one. With the world facing a plethora of challenges at the moment, we need a different perspective, a softer perspective. We salute every woman for their contribution, no matter how big or small, to the innovation community. We recognize your role and look forward to telling the success stories of women-led businesses and their positive impact into the future.
