WITA, together with WIT-LA and WIIT DC, and in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Commerce, invites you to a discussion of how technology can empower women in international trade. This program will highlight technological advances in global trade and showcase successful women at the forefront of these advances.
Panelists will discuss:
- Innovations in technology and tech-based solutions for international trade that help empower women.
- A discussion on how future jobs will require digital connectivity, digital skills, and greater diversity, equity and inclusion.
- Need for women technology experts and entrepreneurs to address the next pandemic, the growing climate crisis, to contribute to emerging technologies such as biotech and AI and take their rightful place as innovators and leaders.
- Current and future access to digital skills that empower every women-led business to expand, become global entrepreneurs, or join global value chains.
