Women InNovation is a global 1-day recorded event of women in sustainability - policy makers, investors, entrepreneurs and organizations - supporting female founders. On May 24th, we'll explore, connect, and share ideas on closing the gender gap, supporting women entrepreneurs, encouraging investors to support equal access to funding, and building thriving ecosystems built on value creation and innovation.
FOUR EVENTS IN ONE:
1. GREEN CAPITAL FOR PLANETARY HEALTH (11.00 am EST)
Meeting the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement by 2050 will require approximately $4.2 trillion in annual direct investments. This journey to net zero calls for public and private investors to mobilize funding in support of renewal energy, carbon capture and storage, sustainable agriculture, transport electrification, and water technologies.
2. ECOSYSTEMS FOR GENDER EQUALITY (12.00 am EST)
Women professionals working within the entrepreneurial, corporate, non-profit, and public sectors need a community of allies and advocates who affirm their self-worth. From New York to Helsinki, women-focused networks are providing their members with resources, mentorship, peer learning, and support.
3. CHAMPIONS FOR IMPACT (2 PM EST)
Women-led startups and legacy firms are pioneering new sustainable tech solutions and business models for a positive environmental impact. Now, they’re sharing their best practices and new approaches for launching products, scaling growth, and entering emerging sectors.
4. EDUCATION FOR LEADERSHIP (3 PM EST)
Technology and new ways of thinking have unlocked new opportunities for knowledge and learning for women. Alternative educational formats have allowed the next generation of entrepreneurs and creative catalysts to gain new skills for success.
