Experts at the International Center for Research on Women have begun to examine how creative ideas intersect with women’s economic, social and personal development. Including women in innovative pursuits can produce fundamentally deeper benefits.
Innovation can catalyze change and help dramatically shift persistent inequalities between them and men. It also can arm women with the ability to recognize new opportunities and the confidence to dive into them.
On January 25 and 26, the first international encounter “Women in the Economy and Innovation” will be held in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico.
The meeting will take place as part of the framework within the hundredth anniversary of the Feminist Congress, held back in January 1916 in the state.
Innovation to empower women
The International Center for Research on Women has also begun to analyze how certain types of technology can enable women to develop their economic potential, become stronger leaders and to more effectively contribute to their families, communities and local economies. Specifically, they’ve found that various technologies can help women increase their productivity as well as launch income-generating pursuits and entrepreneurial ventures.
“Women in the Economy and Innovation” will take place at the José Peón Contreras Theater, and will focus on the economic empowerment of women on equal terms, with a new vision based on an economic, innovative and productive perspective.
According to information provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE), some of the main speakers will be: activist and award-winning actress Susan Sarandon and President of Corporate Tupperware, Rick Goings; also the former Vice President of the United States, Al Gore, will offer a video conference, as well as the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai, on January 25th.
British actress and activist Emma Watson, was also going to attend the meeting, but due to her schedule, participation was canceled, but Rebeca Grynspan, political and Costa Rican economist, who is also Deputy General Secretary of the United Nations, Associate Administrator of the United Nations Development Programme, and Iberoamerican General Secretary will be there, along with the Administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA), Maria Contreras-Sweet; and the application developer, and young lecturer at TED, Thomas Suarez; all of them joining the program of panelists.
