Suggestion please; creation of a tech gadgets library within bookbased libraries. Income disadvantaged children can then play with gadgets and get interested in tech. Interest is key for kids and this is an opportunity for little girls. A fitted travelling bus would be good for rural areas with a treacher. Thank you. from Amali De Silva- Mitchell Dynamic Coalition for Data Driven Technologies.

As companies prepare for and respond to the changes brought about by the ‘future of work,’ The entire world needs business action to ensure that women can not only participate, but also lead in the workplaces of the future. In turn, this will benefit businesses by ensuring they attract and retain the best talent and build a highly skilled and innovative workforce positioned for future success.
