The Women in Tech Challenge, an event organised by Women in Tech, took place in Paris and was sponsored by EIT Manufacturing. The purpose of the challenge was to recognise initiatives that have helped improve diversity and women empowerment in technology at school, at work, and in society in general, in five selected categories: Education, Entrepreneurship, Science & Research, Social Inclusion. The winners, as well as 3 finalists of each category, presented their projects during the event.
The event also included a Masterclass with Dr. Christyl Johnson, (Deputy Director for Technology and Research Investments of Nasa) at La Sorbonne and, in the evening, an Awards Ceremony. EIT Manufacturing was represented by its Interim Innovation Director and Interim Communcation director (in the photo together with Ayumi Moore Aoki, founder and CEO of Women In Tech Organisation) and is honored of having helped this cause by being one of the sponsors of this event.
