The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host a dynamic virtual workshop on June 21-22, 2021 to explore the current structural barriers driving the underrepresentation of women entrepreneurs across science, technology, engineering, and medical (STEMM) industries and strategies to overcome these barriers.
The focus of the workshop will not be on “fixing the women”, but rather, on fixing the structural inequities contributing to the underrepresentation of women in entrepreneurship. The two-day workshop will bring together experts and leaders to identify promising practices for advancing aspiring and current women entrepreneurs and provide insights on how stakeholders in the innovation ecosystem can address various systemic barriers facing women entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds.
NOBIC is beyond excited to see the CEO of Obatala Sciences, Trivia Frazier, on the list of influential speakers for this event. You can learn more about Dr. Fazier and her work in this recent article.
