27.04.2015 | Data Protection and Innovation: Women as solution makers

When: April 27 – 10:00 – 14:00
Where: 51 Rue Montoyer, Brussels 1000, Belgium

Part of Microsoft’s GO GLOBAL series which aims to promote diversity, Data Protection and Innovation: Women as solution makers will explore more broadly what the data protection framework requires from its leaders and generate a dialogue on the role of women as key drivers in IT and in technological and social innovation, particularly in the data protection context. It will also be a chance to meet, network, connect and perhaps set up a women data protection net in Brussels.

The event seeks to include all viewpoints on the debate of women in data protection and innovation and welcomes input or informal discussion and networking from men working in this field as well.
