It’s time to shift the balance. This is the motto of this year’s TEDxBarcelonaWomen event, which is expected to bring together nearly 1,000 people to debate the role of female entrepreneurs in the economy and how to increase investment in their projects. It will be a full day of presentations and activities featuring more than 25 speakers who will talk about their experiences of female empowerment. The speakers are movers and shakers from the world of business, NGOs and social platforms, including Babou Olengha-Aaby, CEO and founder of Mums Mean Business, a crowdfunding platform for mother entrepreneurs, and Gerardo Porteny, a social innovator who previously worked on the UN Women HeforShe campaign. One of the goals of the day will be to support efforts to increase the role of women in universities, business, the media and the community in general. “Now is the moment to speak about the potential of women as a way to economically empower this country,” said curator of the event Aurelie Salvaire.
