Europe: HUAWEI4HER Program for Women in Technology
In 2020, Huawei launched a series of HUAWEI4HER activities across Europe to help boost women's voices in the technology sector. This program received positive feedback from people of all circles.
In March, Huawei held its first Women in the Digital Era event in Brussels where female tech experts shared their own experiences and discussed how to eliminate stereotypes and attract more women into the technology sector. They also shared stories about the positive role women have played in leading the fight against COVID-19 within the technology sector.
In June, Huawei hosted leaders from Finnish political, academic, and non-profit sectors to discuss Finland's successes in gender equality.
At the Huawei Innovation Day hosted in Poland in November, HUAWEI4HER was a key topic of discussion. The event included discussions and debates on how to improve gender equality, diversity, and inclusiveness in the technology sector.
In December, a Huawei representative delivered a keynote speech at the Women in Tech Summit in Poland. A female executive from Huawei Poland was named one of 15 Outstanding Women in Poland's 5G Industry. Huawei and a local foundation launched the Digital Inclusion program in the Businesswoman of the Year competition to motivate female tech entrepreneurs in relevant fields.
In addition, Huawei Europe published a series of Women Power Talks on its official website. In these videos, senior stakeholders shared stories about women's power in the technology sector, trying to expand the scope of the discussion around gender equality issues.
