Global Tech Companies Gather to Advance Gender Equality

On May 8, 2018, leaders gathered in Palm Desert California to form the Male Champions of Change Global Technology Group. The group’s work on the conditions and workplace cultures necessary to enable women’s careers in tech to thrive will help to advance the leadership dimension of the EQUALS Global Partnership, which aims to promote women in decision-making roles within the information and communication technology field and entrepreneurship. 15 male leaders in tech have already stepped up to participate, including CEOs and other senior leaders from Intel Capital, M12 (formerly Microsoft Ventures), the BBC, Blippar, BT Group, Condé Nast International, Henkelx, Made.com, and Naspers. Up to 15 more will be added this year.
