Speakers of Our IWD2024 Event, Women In Blockchain Talks(WiBT).


In a world where technology is rapidly evolving, it’s crucial to ensure that no one gets left behind. Despite the UK’s advancements in embracing emerging tech, there’s still a significant portion of the population struggling with basic digital skills. Surprisingly, even digital natives—those who grew up surrounded by smartphones and social media—can find themselves lacking essential digital literacy when they enter the workforce.

According to The Evening Standard, approximately 10 million adults in the UK face challenges with basic computer skills, such as navigating the internet or performing online banking tasks. Bridging this digital divide is not only a matter of skill acquisition but also one of inclusivity and empowerment.

The potential of emerging technologies like decentralized finance (DeFi), cryptocurrencies, and artificial intelligence (AI) to foster inclusivity is immense. These technologies can empower individuals, providing them with more control over their financial assets and opportunities for growth. However, embracing these innovations requires proactive efforts to ensure that everyone can benefit from them.

To address these issues and celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) 2024, WiBT (Women in Blockchain Talks) is hosting a panel discussion featuring accomplished women founders from various regions across the UK. These visionary leaders will explore how blockchain and Web3 technologies can be leveraged to create positive and inclusive impacts within different communities.
