The go! pads and banana fiber were front and center at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. SHE was honored to speak during the Global Sustainable Technology & Innovation Conference, or G-STIC Forum, beside UN Women, VITO, and technology and innovation leaders from around the world. This year’s forum focused on showcasing market-ready, innovative integrated tech solutions that will help make the Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs) a reality worldwide. SHE Director of Strategy, Connie Lewin, spoke on the role of women behind the innovation process.
Connie shared SHE’s approach toward pursuing gender equity throughout its model and work:
- Be Inclusive. Apply a gender lens across the business that involves women in every aspect of your operations.
- Collaborate. Partner with organizations and businesses that serve and support women to develop solutions to incorporate more women.
- Advocate. Join a network with a strong gender lens agenda that supports women’s empowerment and gender equality.
Special thanks to Engineering for Change for inviting us to speak on the role of women in science, technology, and innovation.
