Boosting health entrepreneurship - #Women4Health

Globally, just 9% of health-tech businesses are founded by women. But we need women’s input into the design and implementation of health technologies to have the best chance of closing gaps in access to health. How can women health entrepreneurs gain equal access to the investment and finance they need to grow their businesses? How can they access the infrastructure they need to succeed, from insurance coverage to knowledge of the legal and regulatory environment that underpins health solutions?

People, not things: combatting gender-based violence - #NoToViolence

Learning to see people as people – and not merely as objects of desire or control – is essential to a just and thriving society. Gender-based violence affects people’s ability to live and work. In both conflict and peacetime, gender-based violence inhibits a country’s stability and growth. How can governments, corporates, individuals and organisations collaborate to uproot the cultural dynamics underpinning gender-based violence, using tools that include early education, legal frameworks and advocacy?

Creating a social movement: applying the neuroscience of purpose, identity and role models to drive contagious movements that change the world, your organization and you - #Women4Inclusion

Many neuroscience myths have made it into popular culture and into the workplace. How can real brain and behaviour science be harnessed to activate our human impulses towards inclusion so we can work in concert on grand challenges like climate change? What does science say about the most relevant studies and data for addressing unconscious bias and advancing inclusion in organisations and communities? What works, and what doesn’t, and why?

Hypergrowth for women entrepreneurs - #FemaleFounders

Tech giants such as Facebook, Google and Apple have witnessed exponential growth since their inception, but very few of today’s unicorns are women-led or women-owned. How can women entrepreneurs gain better access to investment and receive the same kind of support that male-led start-ups seem to attain with ease?
