How can the next generation of women access role models, mentors, and supporters to guide their careers and contributions? SheShaped aims to be the solution: SheShaped was born in the spirit of creating a global community of collaboration that celebrates and empowers women from all industries.
After successfully hosting Japan's first women-in-blockchain event in Tokyo, SheShaped is taking the next one to Singapore, the global hub of blockchain revolution.
Historically, innovative technologies have created wealth for the hard-working early adopters. A decade after the invention of Blockchain, the implementation and productization of the technology has largely been spearheaded by men. Now is the time to actively involve more women by creating opportunities and celebrating female representation. SheShaped Blockchain aims to bring women and men together for the advancement of careers, industries, and wealth.
The 3-hour event will feature three inspiring talks from our Shapers, an audience-driven panel discussion, and a specially designed networking session for you to connect and collaborate with other members of the SheShaped community.
Be part of the movement to celebrate and empower women: join us on Thursday, October 25th, 2018.
19:00-19:15 Introduction & Icebreaker
19:15-19:45 Shaper Talks
Each Shaper will give a 10-min talk about her industry experiences: how is women empowerment important in this industry?
19:45-20:15 Audience-Driven Panel Discussion
Prior to the event, you can submit the questions you want to ask the Shapers. During the panel discussion, Shapers will address the questions and concerns that have been submitted.
20:15-21:00 Community Shaping: Connect & Collaborate
In the final part of the session, you will have the opportunity to connect and collaborate. As determined by the registration survey, each participant will wear either a pink or white name tag. Pink represents those who have projects and are looking for collaborators. White represents those who don’t currently have a project and are keen to help women-centric causes. The ultimate goal is to create a stronger, more connected, and more collaborative community.
21:00-22:30 after-party @ m hotel singapore (tentative location)
