About this event
What will shape tomorrow’s economic transformations in the world of web 3.0? Inspiring women leaders are establishing that today. Policymakers, investors, and organizations have shifted their focus toward the societal and economic aspects of gender parity. While the web 3.0 industry has distributed wealth to the broader society, the state of equal opportunity is still in doubt in terms of income and advancement to the boardroom. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) have restructured the wealth distribution in the art, technology, and finance industries, facilitating the mass adoption of blockchain technology. The value that people place on authenticity and collaboration are the driving forces that will redefine the gender balance in Web 3.0.
