It will take a century to close the current global gender gap!
That’s the conclusion of the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap report released at the end of 2017.
Despite a number of initiatives by both public and private sectors to promote equality, across the globe women continue to earn less, work more, have less participation in the labor force and are under-represented at the executive level of large corporations.
A study by LeanIn.org and McKinsey with 222 U.S. companies shows that women remain underrepresented at every level in corporate America, despite earning more college degrees than men.
According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, in four economies, women report equal or higher entrepreneurship rates than men: Indonesia, Mexico, Brazil, and Malaysia.
In the U.S. women own 11.3 million companies, an estimated 36% of all businesses. However, women face plenty of challenges when it comes to access to capital. In 2016 female founders got only 2.19% of VC funding. At the top 100 venture firms, it’s still a predominantly man’s world, only 7% of senior partners are women.
These issues speak to the hearts of BayBrazil’s team. That’s why in 2011 we launched the Global Women’s Journey series and have been shedding a light on women’s advancements & challenges ever since. On March 15th meet international female leaders and join an inspiring dialogue on diversity, tech innovation, and entrepreneurship.
Discussion topics include:
- Building & scaling companies – the journey of successful CEOs & Managing Directors
- Women in Investing – their strategies, preferred sectors, and market perspective
- Innovation at workplace – meet women in tech leading teams and driving change
- Women in Finance – a special session on how tech innovation is impacting the global fintech market
- Women in Politics – overview on political participation and what has changed in the past decade
