Chief Executive Officer, Havas UK
I am delighted to see WomenPresent come to market. Too often, event organisers claim they have done all they can to create gender balanced panels and speakers, but rarely do I feel this is actually the case. WomenPresent will provide a much needed valuable resource and "nudge" in these situations. I have no doubt that it will start to affect positive change.
As a proud feminist and supporter for #HeforShe, it is great to see a business using technology to solve a problem that is rife in the tech ecosystem, namely the fair representation of women on stage and in leadership roles. Event organisers everywhere should be excited by this platform and the opportunity to more easily deliver a more inclusive, balanced range of perspectives."
