The event, entitled "The great global economic challenge: strategies to integrate female talent in the 4.0 revolution" and organized by FEDEPE at the Cervantes Institute in New York, counted with the participation of entrepreneurs such as Estrella Jaramillo (B-wom), María Luisa Pineda (Envisagenics) or Francisca García Vizcaíno (Ilunion) and the representative of UN Women in Ecuador, the Spanish ex-minister Bibiana Aído.
"After 7 years, stereotypes are internalized, so we must influence equality education and change textbooks to promote women's access to leadership positions," said Bujandón.
Aido, exresponsible for Equality (2008-2010), said in a statement the need to develop policies to ensure the return of women to the positions they had in their companies before motherhood, "one of the main barriers when it comes to ascend.
