Falling Walls Plenary Table: Promoting Gender Equality for Innovation
Falling Walls Foundation | Monika Lessl
SHAPE THE AGENDA OF THE HIGH-LEVEL DIALOGUE ON THE FUTURE OF SCIENCE
Promotion of gender equality drives innovation both in science and in industrial organisations. However, we miss to put our scientific knowledge into practice. We must find ways to innovate our recruiting, work processes and most importantly our understanding of leadership. Thus, in this panel we will explore the questions: How to implement gender equality to increase the quality of innovation? What else needs to be changed? And for that matter, who needs to change: decision makers or policy makers shaping gender equality or those gender who are disadvantaged?
LIVE EVENT; AVAILABLE VIA LIVESTREAM AND ATTENDANCE IN LECTURE HALL. RADIAL, GROUND FL. FOR SUMMIT PARTICIPANTS
Falling Walls Circle Tables will give the spotlight to world-leading scientists, science strategists and policy-makers from academia, business and politics to shape the agenda of the future of science.
