It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues.

The Digital World: Growth Points and Opportunities for Women
14 October 2021
17:00—18:30
Today, digitalization has become an integral part of day-to-day life, and has found its way into every area of work. Skills and values are evolving, and so are opportunities for women. There is now a need to adapt the employment system to fit the new reality, and to effectively train new cohorts of workers.

In today’s labour market, workers possessing digital expertise have a palpable advantage. It is crucial for women to master new technologies and skills in order to compete on the labour market. The potential now exists for people to combine work with other areas of life, and to enjoy equal access to modern resources.

What needs to be done to increase female participation in high-tech and innovation-based industries? What educational reforms need to be made to teach digital literacy as an essential skill for the modern world? What will make leaders at post-digital companies stand out from those at other companies at a time when every business is actively investing in digital technologies? What will be the role of women in this regard? What can be done to help women in remote regions develop their digital skills and employ digital platforms for their businesses?
