As part of its campaign against gender inequality, TEDx in Barcelona hosts a talk emphasising that the issue is not only important to women, but needs men to address it as well. With high global rates of violence against women and a lack of women in leadership positions, this event puts the spotlight on some people who have made a real difference in this area, even though there is still much to achieve. The talks feature 15 international business and organisational professionals who have sparked change in gender equality around the world. Guests include founding member of Singularity University, Susan Fonseca, and Araceli Segarra, the first Spanish woman to climb Mount Everest. The audience will also hear from men such as Promundo founder Gary Barker, who campaigns to involve men and boys in reaching gender equality.
