The European Commission says NO to all-male panels at tech events

EC logoThe digital department of the European Commission, DGCONNECT, has decided to always include at least two women speakers at their events, and will no longer accept invitations to speak on all-male panels or at all-male conferences organised by outside stakeholders. This pursues the department’s ongoing commitment to the better representation of women experts speaking at tech events in Europe. It promises to continue to promote diversity and speak about the issues alongside women, to ensure everyone can listen to what women say about digital technology and make sure their voice is heard more widely.
