The University of Oxford has made a commitment to supporting entrepreneurship, but there are still inequalities in the entrepreneurship ecosystem.

With a focus on gender, the playing field is not, and has never been, level. Globally, women hold fewer than a quarter of senior leadership positions, and in 2020 less than 2% of European tech investment capital went to female founders (source: Enterprising Oxford).

Hosted by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Irene Tracey, the event will open a discussion around how this picture can be changed for current and future generations of women.

The panel discussion and Q&A will take place from 12:30 – 13:30. For in-person attendees there will be a chance to network, and continue the discussion with Professor Tracey and the panellists, until 14:00.
