The presentation will be given by our data analyst and colleague Ema, who is not only passionate about this topic but also a dedicated advocate for gender equality in the tech industry. The presentation is based on the acclaimed book "Invisible Women: Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men" by Caroline Criado Perez.

Ema is the founder of the student association ADA at Halmstad University, a remarkable organization dedicated to empowering female engineers. Her commitment to promoting gender equality in the technology industry was recognized in 2021 when she was awarded the prize "Women who are good role models in Halland." Her dedication is further evident in her active participation in WiTEC, where she continues her mission to empower women engineers.

During the presentation, Ema will highlight how our world, often constructed by and for men, systematically overlooks and neglects the needs and experiences of half the population - women. Using a wide range of case studies, stories and new research from around the world, Ema will reveal the hidden ways in which women are often forgotten in various areas of society and the potentially negative consequences this can have for us all.

This is an opportunity to learn, discuss and jointly explore how we can make our world fairer and more inclusive for all. We look forward to having you with us on October 24th and expect an enriching evening of reflection and discussion.

Please confirm your attendance by October 20th.
