On 22 April, the European Internet Forum (EIF) held a virtual debate on Diversity in Tech, focusing on the need to enhance diversity and inclusion as key drivers for innovation, non-linear thinking, growth and success. The debate was hosted by MEP Maria da Graça Carvalho, and included Petra Kotuliakova, Member of the CEPIS Diversity team, among the list of speakers.
Ms Kotuliakova noted that currently only 17% of women are working in the ICT sector and called for action on this topic on all levels – “less talking, more doing”. She also showcased the CEPIS DiversIT Charter as a useful tool to help companies achieve concrete results in gender equality.
