Female Role-Models in Tech Thriving for a Greener Future

With Kim Stollar, Managing Director EU&NATO Government Affairs Boeing and Hannah Brocke, Co-Founder & COO at PlanBlue

Environmental sustainability is one of the greatest challenges of our time, and one key solution that can reverse its effects is technology. If we are to meet the targets of the 2015 Paris Agreement, then we must act quickly. That’s why we need to enlarge the pools of skills, talents and resources in technology. With women making up only 22% of the STEM workforce, we are falling short of the diversity that is critical to producing new ideas and technologies. Can we count on technological innovation to mitigate climate change even with many promising ‘green technologies’ still in the early phases of development? What are the policies and programmes to put in place in order to encourage more girls and young women to pursue a career in STEM and ICT?
