Innovation means shaping the future. If done right, it means creating a better tomorrow. HYPE wants to add our voices – and yours! – to create a fairer world. A world where gender equality is a reality and every person gets the opportunity to speak up and make a difference.
There is a lot to be said about this topic, but we feel that actions matter more. So we’d like to show some of our contributions.
This March, HYPE hosted the second edition of the virtual event Women in Innovation. Women and supporters of women met virtually across the globe for a series of conversations designed to excite, enthuse and inspire women to create impact and live a life of purpose.
Inspired by the International Women's Day theme of #BreaktheBias, the event boasted women from diverse backgrounds, industries, cultures and professional levels, all sharing their unique experiences.
Our Women in Innovation initiative showcases amazing women and is intended to inspire more women and non-binary people to join the innovation field.
Check out the three-part series of panel discussions to hear panelists share their personal innovation style and views on being a female leader in male-dominated industries.
We originally started the Women in Innovation initiative to inspire more women to add their voices to innovation and change the world. To keep on providing valuable content on that topic and to connect you with inspiring women from different geographies, industries, and backgrounds, we are offering a series of interviews portraying talented women living and breathing innovation.
HYPE provides a female perspective on innovation topics to encourage more women to pursue a career in innovation, champion it in their organizations, and pave the way for future generations. We were thrilled to partner with ElleHacks, Canada's largest and first all-women student-run hackathon, to power their 2021 digital hackathon for women in STEM.
