A new era is upon us! The winds of change are altering restrictive barriers and stereotypes for women and ultimately reshaping the face of business and technology as we know it.
We at Garage48 have always been strong supporters of this trend and have witnessed and followed quite a few new female leaders being born out of our hackathons. We would like to see it even more often and that’s why we called together this hackathon on empowering women!
On March 16 — 18, 2018 Garage48 is returning to Lviv to encourage more women to take the entrepreneurial path.
Did you know these facts about female entrepreneurs?
— Women own just a mere 5 % of all the startups
— Only 7 % of partners at top 100 venture capital firms are women
— After peaking in 1991 at 36 %, the rate of women in computing roles has been in steady decline, with a current 25%
— Women hold only 11 % of executive positions at Silicon Valley companies
— Women receive lower salary offers than men for the same job at the same company 63 % of the time
— Women earn only 28 % of all the computer science degrees. At the same time, in different polls and questionnaires taken, more than 50% of young girls have expressed their interest in continuing their studies on STEM fields and computer science
Looking at the above statistics, it’s obvious that these girls are determined :)
