More and more venture capitals, tech companies and governments have realised, in recent years, that diversity is integral to innovation and many have begun placing diversity and inclusion both at the heart of their organisation and innovation initiatives. But what happens to these efforts as Covid-19 sweeps the globe and when businesses find themselves under extreme pressure during the pandemic? How can we navigate the changing fundraising landscape? What is done to ensure that diversity and inclusion in tech and innovation are not side-lined and overlooked? 

Join us for the first in a series of online events, with leading innovation professionals, tech entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists in Israel and the UK aimed at providing insights and access to women across different sectors. Speakers share best practices and opportunities in both countries on how to navigate the fundraising landscape as well as draw on their own experience adjusting to the new working norms while taking a forward look at how we may rebuild the Diversity and Inclusion agenda when the world starts moving again.
