International Women’s Day: Increasing gender diversity in enterprise

About the event

This event is open to University and college staff and students.

Register to attend online. We have reached full capacity for attending the event in-person. 

The University of Oxford has made a commitment to supporting entrepreneurship, but there are still inequalities in the entrepreneurship ecosystem. 

With a focus on gender, the playing field is not, and has never been, level. Globally, women hold fewer than a quarter of senior leadership positions, and in 2020 less than 2% of European tech investment capital went to female founders (source: Enterprising Oxford). 

Hosted by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Irene Tracey, the event will open a discussion around how this picture can be changed for current and future generations of women. 

The panel discussion and Q&A will take place from 12:30 - 13:30. For in-person attendees there will be a chance to network, and continue the discussion with Professor Tracey and the panellists, until 14:00.
