April 30, 2020
In this episode, we connect the dots with mathematics.
We still face a significant gender gap in technology, science and business. Moreover, it’s challenging to solve this problem, until we are able to connect the dots between policymakers, technologists and ecosystems, including how we define and protect diversity, create policies, keep ethics both on a local and multilateral level.
Today’s conversation with Alysia Silberg, data scientist, a global champion for entrepreneurship and women’s empowerment, and general partner at Street Global Venture Capital. She spent an amazing journey from South Africa born data scientist and mathematician to the UN women advocate and venture capitalist. She shares multidisciplinary views on various topics that help us to answer the key question of this episode.
We talk about data science and STEM, diversity in tech, women in venture capital, equality, ethics and policies.
