Sime gender policy

It is a well-known fact that there is an uneven gender balance in the technology sector and amongst entrepreneurs. Further Sime and Sime Social Impact have the ambition to raise the number of females amongst our invited speakers, workshop leaders and jury members.

Equality FTW

Our focus is to invite women with relevant competencies, experiences and positions, welcoming them to take part in a context where they get to act as the leaders, inspirers or entrepreneurs that they are.

We wish to acknowledge that this is just a start – neither Sime nor anyone else can hope to change the uneven gender balance in just one day or even a year. however, we at Sime will take the steps we can to help bring about change, and we hope that our visitors and speakers will help us by in their turn by inviting more women to participate.

Sime encourages more women to enter the business and to attend educations that lead to work in the technology industry. Recommend a female speaker.
