More female speakers on stage!

Do you recognize this? You are at an event and notice that there are only men on stage. Again not a female speaker. To see that there are more male than female speakers, you do not need scientific knowledge. The vast majority of speakers who are booked are men.

Although the men are great at what they do, there are plenty of inspiring, female speakers who could shine at your event. And their subjects do not lie either: Retail Trends, Space, Technology, Life Science, Artificial Intelligence, The Future of Work, Sustainable Mobility, Sharing Economy, Smart Cities ... We put five top female speakers in the spotlight below. After reading this blog, the team of Assemblee Speakers motivates you to always think of a female speaker when composing the program!
