On May 22nd, three community organizations, Startup Grind Shenzhen, Coding Girls, and Ladies Who Tech, representing women in technology, workplace, and entrepreneurship, will host the first event in a special series called "The Other Half" at CEIBS: Tech & Society: Lesser-Known Ways Technology Is Powering Social Change. In this event, we will explore the little-known stories of ordinary women using technology to change their lives. The goal is to make people aware of things that deserve attention but don't get enough attention.
In this increasingly connected world, we are more disconnected than ever before. There’s so much information available, yet we sometimes only see what’s immediately around us. For some reason, it’s so hard to see the other half of the picture.
“The Other Half” is an event series initiated by the directors of Startup Grind Shenzhen, Ladies Who Tech, and Coding Girls in Shenzhen. Our goal is to create awareness around the overlooked problems which burden our society, promote emerging ideas, and connect lesser-known opportunities with those who seek them. Together, we leverage our unique access to innovators, entrepreneurs, and organizations and cross-industry reach to foster a more inclusive and dynamic community.
The Other Half's first sharing event will be held in May. Our goal is to make people aware of things that deserve attention but don't get enough attention. In keeping with our mission, this event will explore the lesser-known stories of real-life ordinary women using technology to change their lives.
This will also be Startup Grind Shenzhen's event responding to our #SGWomen Leaders Month initiative. Every year Startup Grind hosts our #SGWomen Leaders Month-proudly recognizing the accomplishments of successful female leaders all over the world.
This year's #SGWomen month is proudly presented by Google for Startups and Silicon Valley Bank.
*The event will be held in Mandarin Chinese.
