La French Tech Taiwan with Taiwan Tech Arena’s celebration of Women’s International Day

In May 2022, La French Tech launched the “Parity Pact” which was then signed by 69 French startups from the FT120 (French startups in hypergrowth). The pact aims to implement concrete commitments to significantly and sustainably advance equality between women and men in the French start-up ecosystem. This year La French Tech Taiwan takes the opportunity of the celebration of the International Women’s Day to make an assessment of women entrepreneurship in the French and Taiwanese innovation ecosystems: which best practices can be shared in terms of governance, recruitment and training ; what are innovative or alternative ways to challenge biases encountered by female founders and generally minorities in the workplace? 

We will address these questions by inviting policy makers and representatives at government and corporate levels, startup founders and women working in tech to share their guidelines and testimonies hoping to contribute to creating more equity and diversity in the workplace.
