Who Should Attend Female Disruptors

Women who want to shift the gender balance and racial wealth gap and take action during one of the most opportune times in history. PS - THAT'S YOU!!

Did You Know?

- “A woman can be anything she wants to be.” (Boss Beauties)

- In January 2020, Goldman Sachs announced it won’t take any company public if it does not have at least one woman or non-white board member.

- By 2021, Goldman required its IPO clients to have two diverse board members.

- “Crypto is male-dominated and has a very masculine look. We need more well-designed concepts that would bring more women into crypto. If women don’t get into Crypto (they are currently only investing at half the rate as men), then the wealth balance won’t change in the next 10-20 years." (Forbes)

- It is believed that Blockchain, NFTs, Augmented Reality and web3 will be the framework of how the world will operate in the future.

       - mutual funds (30% of men vs. 20% of women)

       - real estate (36% of men vs. 30% of women)
