Marieke Flament - Bridging the Web3 Gender Gap
An old boy’s club - that’s how the world of finance & investing is often seen. And unfortunately the crypto ecosystem is looking no different. According to a survey done by crypto exchange Gemini in 2021, only a quarter of crypto owners in the United States were women. And per another research, women crypto founders were in a clear minority & got only a fraction of the crypto funding pie.
What will it take to make the world of Crypto more inclusive? Is there a need for gender focussed policy action? What can we do to make projects & technology overcome the embedded bias, whether it’s gender, language or something else? And who are the female changemakers in Web3 who are shattering the glass ceiling? Get the answer to all these questions as NEAR Foundation & Forkast launch the Women in Web3 Changemakers 2022.
