About this event

There is a clear and consistent absence of women employed in the AI sector, over three-quarters of professionals employed in this sector are male (78%). AI is the world's biggest business opportunity of the next three decades and it is paramount we magnify the women working in this sector and ensure more women take senior positions. We must create spaces for women to learn and share their learnings of Artificial Intelligence.

Nope! The Stack World is for anyone who believes in gender equality. Our content is catered to all women, but anyone is welcome to join and support.

Hosted on Zoom, these events are curated by The Stack team especially for the driven, curious, creative women who make up our members and span business, culture, society, beauty and wellness.
What kinds of events will I have access to?
From talks with award-winning CEOs on how to get your business off the ground to home tutorials and self-care from beauty experts, expect exclusive virtual events, workshops, business classes and roundtable discussions – and much more. We even have a bookclub!
